Hogan Lovells Partner and Client Win 2013 Flex Success Award
12 March 2013
WASHINGTON, D.C., 12 March 2013 – Hogan Lovells is pleased to announce that the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance has awarded Eve Howard, a partner in our Washington, D.C. office, and Susan Herlick, Senior Vice President, General Counsel, and Secretary at long-time client Orbital Sciences Corporation, as an attorney-client team with one of only two Alliance Flex Success Awards for 2013.
The Flex Success Award recognizes the crucial role clients play in making workplace flexibility a reality by honoring those attorney-client relationships that best exemplify how with client support, lawyers can work reduced hours on flexible schedules, deliver exceptional legal services, and have extraordinarily successful careers.
Howard, a partner in the Corporate Practice group, has been with Hogan Lovells for nearly 25 years, 11 of which she has worked on a reduced-hours schedule. In addition to serving as co-chair of both the Alternative Work Arrangements committee and the Recruitment committee, Howard serves as a trustee with leadership roles for two independent school boards. She has represented Orbital Sciences for more than 15 years.
“In addition to maintaining a successful practice, Eve serves as a great role model for others at Hogan Lovells,” said Washington, D.C. Regional Managing Partner Emily M. Yinger. “Her strong client relationship with Orbital Sciences Corporation exemplifies that attorney-client partnerships can thrive with lawyers using flexible schedules when communication and excellent service go hand-in-hand.”
Since its inception in 2009, Howard is the second Hogan Lovells lawyer to be presented the Alliance Flex Success Awards. In 2011, Alice Valder Curran, a Washington, D.C.-based partner, and Dorothy Watson, General Counsel of long-time client Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation were honored.
The Diversity & Flexibility Alliance is a nation forum dedicated to the promotion and retention of women lawyers and work/life control for all attorneys
