Hogan Lovells senior associate Elizabeth Carr Pignatelli recognized as an Up & Coming Lawyer by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly

Boston, May 14, 2018 – Hogan Lovells senior associate Elizabeth Carr Pignatelli was recognized by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly as an Up & Coming Lawyer as part of its Excellence in the Law 2018 Awards held on May 10 in Boston. The award recognizes individual attorneys who have been admitted to and practicing in the Massachusetts Bar for 10 years or less, yet have already distinguished themselves in the practice of law.

Pignatelli represents clients in a wide range of investigations and commercial disputes, with a particular focus on the healthcare, financial services, education, and medical device sectors. Most recently, she assisted a Hogan Lovells team on the high-profile independent investigation for the Massachusetts Senate Ethics Committee regarding the conduct of former Senate President Stanley C. Rosenberg.

Prior to joining the firm in 2013, Lizzie represented large financial institutions and individuals in connection with regulatory investigations, complex commercial disputes, and securities actions at an international firm in New York. Before she moved to private practice, Lizzie was a law clerk for the Honorable Joseph L. Tauro of the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts and the Honorable Michael A. Chagares of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. During law school, Lizzie interned in the Major Crimes Unit of the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of New York.

“While a law clerk for now-retired U.S. District Court Judge Joseph L. Tauro, I had the opportunity to work on the first constitutional challenges to the federal Defense of Marriage Act. To play even a small part in expanding marriage equality for same-sex couples will forever be one of the great honors of my career,” said Pignatelli.

Lizzie devotes her time pro bono to representing victims of domestic violence as a volunteer attorney for the Women's Bar Foundation, where she also serves on the Board of Trustees.
