Mitch Reich among American Lawyer's Young Lawyers of the Year

This week, American Lawyer announced the finalists of its 2020 awards and the winners of a few categories. Mitch Reich, a senior associate and rising star in Hogan Lovells' Appellate practice, has been named one of five Young Lawyers of the Year.

The award for Mitch came at an auspicious time, just days after his big en banc win in the 11th Circuit in a major standing case, and the day before oral argument in Fulton v. City of Philadelphia in the U.S. Supreme Court. Mitch second-chaired that important Supreme Court argument, which concerned the rights of LGBT individuals to become foster care parents.

Partner Neal Katyal said, "Mitch's work was in the finest tradition of the bar and our pro bono practice at Hogan Lovells. He was absolutely indispensable throughout the case, brilliant, strategic, thoughtful, and all through the case brought his heart and passion for justice to it. Mitch is one of only a few openly gay attorneys to have argued a case in the Supreme Court, which he did last year, winning the Rodriguez bankruptcy case unanimously. It was a singular privilege to work with him on Fulton." Earlier this year, Mitch was also recognized as a Rising Star by National Law Journal.

American Lawyer also named Hogan Lovells as one of only two law firms selected as finalists for Regional Litigation Department of the Year in Florida. The winner will be announced in a virtual celebration in January 2021. You can read more about the full slate of finalists in the American Lawyer.
