Washington, D.C., Denver 3 October 2023 — Eight partners at global law firm Hogan Lovells have been named among Law360’s MVPs for 2022-2023, one of the most prestigious awards in the legal profession. This is the most winners the firm has achieved since the publication began its awards series.
Appellate partners Neal Katyal and Jessica Ellsworth did something very rare, with both of them winning MVP in the same Appellate category for last year. Each represented parties in landmark US Supreme Court cases, and won big. Katyal alone argued 5 cases there, almost 10% of the Court’s entire docket, chalking up huge wins on voting rights, arbitration, cryptocurrency, and the death penalty. Ellsworth also won a huge (different) voting rights case at the Supreme Court, as well as safe guarding access to drugs used to terminate pregnancies. They are now both representing Google in the historic antitrust actions that the company faces.
Justin Bernick is a leader in our groundbreaking antitrust litigation practice that has notched an unprecedented three trial wins against the Federal Trade Commission and Department of Justice over the past year, as well as major pretrial victories like a summary judgment win in In re Broiler Chicken Antitrust Litigation.
Amy Roma, leader of the firm’s Global Energy Practice, was selected in the Energy category following another year spent guiding the world’s most innovative energy companies to breakthrough success, including work to commercialize the first nuclear fusion power plant. Roma is one of the nuclear industry’s most prominent experts and has testified multiple times before Congress on matters related to the nuclear energy industry.
Cliff Stromberg added to past industry recognitions by being named MVP in the Health Care category. Stromberg is a leading strategic and legal counsellor in the arena of hospitals and health systems, academic medical centers, and managed care organizations. He and his team have crafted many of the largest and most innovative health care transactions.
Continuing our recent run of recognition in the Real Estate category, partner Scott Campbell graduated from a Law360 Rising Star to MVP. Campbell has established himself and his practice among the nation’s leaders in fast growth, high complexity experiential and sports real estate.
Following three wins in the last four years in Law360’s Practice Groups of the Year for our Sports practice, Head of the firm’s Sports practice group Matt Eisler achieved individual recognition as a Sports & Betting MVP. Eisler has been a key innovator in sports investment, and played leading roles in several major sports transactions, including the 2020 sale of the Brooklyn Nets, the 2022 sale of the Denver Broncos, and this year’s sale of the Washington Commanders.
Finally, Lisa Ellman, now a two-time Law360 MVP for Transportation, was again recognized for her leading role in the development of the advanced aviation industry.
