05 December 2013
WASHINGTON, D.C. 5 December 2013 – Hogan Lovells is proud to announce that partner Mark Sterling has accepted a Fellowship with the Harvard Advanced Leadership Initiative beginning in January 2014. In addition to accepting the Fellowship, Sterling will become Of Counsel effective 31 December 2013.
The Advanced Leadership Initiative is designed to enhance and leverage the skills of highly accomplished, experienced leaders who want to apply their talents to tackle critical societal challenges, including those affecting health and welfare, children, and the environment, and focus on community and public service in the next phase of their careers.
As a Partner, Sterling’s practice has focused on cutting-edge services, including working with clients to implement the Medicare Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), and to establish and fund new medical research institutes. He has also worked extensively with clients in the area of hospice and end-of-life care.
"Mark’s remarkable experience in the healthcare sector enabled him to provide clients with highly effective and uniquely informed counsel,” said Hogan Lovells Co-CEO Warren Gorrell. “We are fortunate that he will continue working with the firm in an Of Counsel capacity and know he will thrive as a Fellow with the Harvard Advanced Leadership Initiative.”
Sterling currently serves as Administrative Partner for the Miami office, a position he has held since 2001, and is a member of the Health Practice Area. He originally joined Hogan Lovells in 1979 as an associate in the Washington, D.C. office and was named Partner in 1988. Sterling left Hogan Lovells in 1993 to become the first General Counsel of Vitas Healthcare Corporation, then the nation’s largest provider of hospice care services. Upon his return to Hogan Lovells in 2000, Sterling was instrumental in establishing the firm’s Miami office.
“I have enjoyed my time at Hogan Lovells immensely,” said Sterling. “I am honored to be selected and look forward to my new role as a Fellow and to working alongside leaders who are dedicated to solving significant social problems.”
