These annual awards recognize legal professionals (practicing lawyers, law professors, corporate counsel, members of the judiciary, politicians, etc.) under the age of 40 who have distinguished themselves in their field and have demonstrated a profound commitment to LGBTQ+ equality.  The LGBT Bar selected Spivey from a strong field of over 100 qualified nominees.   

Spivey works at the forefront of new and emerging technologies as a member of our Global Regulatory and Communications, Internet and Media practices.  Spivey regularly represents globally recognized clients before federal agencies, including the Federal Communications Commission and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration.   

Spivey also devotes a significant amount of time to LGBTQ+ causes both inside the firm and in his community. He is an active participant in the Hogan Lovells Global Pride+ network, as well as in its U.S. LGBT+ affinity group. He devotes a significant amount of time to LGBTQ+ pro bono work, including serving on the National Center for Transgender Equality’s Advisory Council.

Spivey is also an active member of the Federal Communications Bar Association, including serving on the Association’s Executive Committee and recently completing a two-year term as co-chair of its Young Lawyers Committee (YLC). As YLC co-chair, Spivey chaired an annual charity auction benefitting the FCBA Foundation and a local D.C. non-profit.
