Hogan Lovells ranks 7th on AmLaw Pro Bono Scorecard

Global law firm Hogan Lovells has been placed among the top ten law firms on this year’s American Lawyer Pro Bono Scorecard, ranking 7th out of 117 firms on the list. The firm moved into the top tier after ranking 25th two years ago and 14th last year.

The rankings reflect work performed by U.S.-based lawyers in 2021 at AmLaw 200 firms, based on both the average number of pro bono hours per lawyer and the percentage of lawyers who performed at least 20 hours of pro bono work. The full rankings can be found here.

Hogan Lovells’ ranking reflects work on the following matters, among many others: 

  • The firm secured the largest wrongful conviction verdict in U.S. history on behalf of two Black men who spent decades on death row in North Carolina before their release. For the team’s efforts, it earned the Public Justice Trial Lawyer of the Year award.
  • Following the effective collapse of the Afghan Government in mid-August, hundreds of Hogan Lovells colleagues across every U.S. office have volunteered to assist Afghan nationals fleeing the Taliban and seeking humanitarian relief.
  • In Baltimore, the firm facilitated the renovation and expansion of a domestic violence shelter, a project that more than triples the nonprofit’s original space and focuses on promoting wellbeing and healing among its residents.
  • The firm challenged racial gerrymandering in Alabama, North Carolina, and Virginia.
  • Hogan Lovells celebrated the grand opening of Phase One of Miami’s Underline, a linear park for which the firm has provided pro bono services since 2013.
  • Through DC Represents, the firm has assisted more than 100 individuals and families in civil protection order, guardian ad litem, housing conditions and record-sealing cases since the initiative was launched in the Fall of 2020. 

Hogan Lovells’ staff, including lawyers and non-lawyers, continues to provide pro bono services leveraging employees’ differing interests, skill sets, and time constraints. More about the firm’s pro bono services can be found here.
