WASHINGTON, D.C., 8 December 2015 – The Financial Times listed Hogan Lovells as one of the 10 most innovative law firms in its 2015 “North America Innovative Lawyers” report. The annual report recognizes the firm’s originality, rationale behind strategy, and impact of work.
In addition to Hogan Lovells’ overall ranking, the Financial Times separately recognized Neal Katyal as a “most innovative lawyer” at the paper's Innovative Lawyers Awards.
