15 July 2011
WASHINGTON, D.C., 15 July 2011 – Hogan Lovells announced today that it has been listed among Law360’s Top Ten Pro Bono Firms of 2011 for dedicating a robust number of lawyer hours and securing significant wins in pro bono matters over the past year.
“This award is a recognition of Hogan Lovells’ longstanding and deep commitment to pro bono work, and of the numerous individual lawyers whose tireless dedication resulted in many important pro bono victories for clients in the past year,” said full-time Pro Bono Practice partner and Co-Chair of Hogan Lovells’ Citizenship Panel, Patricia Brannan.
In the Law360 feature profile on Hogan Lovells’ wins and recent pro bono work, partners Desmond Hogan and Christopher Handman discussed their work with the Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project in securing habeas relief for pro bono client Derek Tice. Hogan noted that, “The firm has a long and deep history of jumping on innocence cases and wrongful conviction cases, and the firm does nothing but support the time-intensive work that it takes to do these cases.”
In the feature, Brannan explained, “We just don’t give up…That’s important for litigation in general, and it is especially important for bigger firms and firms that have the global footprint we do. We take on the tough issues, stick with them and come to a result.”
The award coincides with Hogan Lovells’ publication of its 2010 Citizenship Report, which highlights its pro bono, diversity, environment, matched global giving, and community investment activities that have taken place in the last year.
