Hogan Lovells lauded for pro bono reporting

Washington, D.C., 5 January 2018 – The American Society of Professional Communicators (ASPC) has named Hogan Lovells among the winners of its 2017 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report Awards. The firm rose to the top of the Best Narrative category for our pro bono storytelling skills.

The ASPC’s annual competition draws submissions from organizations across all industry sectors and revenue classes. The judges consider how well the entrants document their outstanding work and its impact on the communities they serve. Our people devote a significant amount of time and energy to pro bono legal services, which is part of the firm’s larger Citizenship program.

Commenting on the award, Hogan Lovells partner T. Clark Weymouth, who manages the firm’s Pro Bono practice, said: “It’s an honor to be selected for this award. Our people are incredibly committed to providing meaningful access to justice for those who need it most. It’s no surprise, then, that we’re at an advantage in telling our story. My colleagues’ tireless pro bono efforts make it easy to write a compelling narrative.”

The ASPC’s panel of judges are all professional communicators with a decade or more of experience working on annual and CSR reports across the private and public sectors. We were in good company among this year’s winners. Across the various CSR report categories, other winners included Southwest Airlines, MGM Resorts International, AT&T, Exelon Corporation, CVS Health, MetLife, and Nasdaq.

ASPC President Erin Reilly added: “Our judges were beyond impressed with the creativity of this year’s reports, but also the commitment to clarity as these organizations worked to tell their stories in ways that were transparent and meaningful for all of their varied constituencies. In most cases, it was very difficult to choose which from those among the best were most deserving of our top prizes. All of this year’s honorees should be extremely proud of their accomplishments.”
