Hogan Lovells senior associate Courtney Caruso named among Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly’s “Up and Coming Lawyers”

Courtney Caruso, a senior associate in our Boston office, has been named an “Up and Coming Lawyer” by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly through the publication’s annual Excellence in the Law Program. The award recognizes Massachusetts lawyers who have been practicing for ten years or less, yet have already distinguished themselves in the practice of law.

Caruso has been with the firm since July of 2017, after serving as a law clerk for the Honorable Jennifer C. Boal in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts.  Prior to clerking, Caruso practiced in the Boston office of a global law firm. She is a 2013 graduate of Harvard Law School.

In that relatively short period of time, Courtney has made a deep impression on the firm and on her clients. She represents individuals and businesses in investigations and litigation matters, most often defending her clients in criminal and civil cases brought by the Department of Justice, Securities and Exchange Commission, and other federal and state agencies.

“Courtney has a unique skill that distinguishes her from many other young lawyers,” said Boston-based Hogan Lovells partner Tony Fuller. “She can pivot from defending a corporate client in a massive health care fraud investigation involving millions of emails to defending an indigent client in a court appointed Federal criminal case involving an alleged heroin distribution conspiracy. Her approach – methodical, detailed, thoughtful, and analytical – is the same regardless of the case.”

Caruso is dedicated to pro bono work and to engaging with the local community. She serves as the Chair of the Massachusetts Associate Board of Generation Citizen, an organization that brings action civics programming to thousands of students around the country, and which helped push forward the pioneering Massachusetts civics education bill that was signed into law by Governor Baker in November 2018. She also sits on the Boston Chamber of Commerce Talent Development and Retention Leadership Council and the City Awake Advisory Board, both of which promote programs and policies that will attract, develop, and retain a strong and diverse talent pipeline in the greater Boston area. In 2018, Caruso was recognized by Year Up as an outstanding volunteer and mentor.  

Caruso’s pro bono work includes seeking a sentence commutation on behalf of a war veteran serving a life sentence for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense that he committed more than three decades ago. Previously, Caruso represented undocumented minors in deportation proceedings, obtaining Special Immigrant Juvenile Status for one client who was later awarded a Green Card based upon that status.
