Pro Bono | Hogan Lovells Receives the Lifetime Achievement Award for Citizenship
01 October 2014
The American Lawyer honored us with its Lifetime Achievement Award for Citizenship for our work in Liberia at its Global Legal Awards dinner in September. To help address the major challenges facing Liberia's fledgling democracy, our lawyers, together with the International Senior Lawyers Project (ISLP), have been providing extensive pro bono assistance to Liberia's Ministries of Justice, Finance, and Health and Social Welfare since 2007.
Hogan Lovells partnered with the ISLP to assist the Government of Liberia in the negotiation and renegotiation of natural resource concession agreements, mineral development agreements, and investment contracts, along with the review and revision of Liberian procurement laws. Hogan Lovells also has worked with ISLP and the Liberian Ministry of Health and Social Welfare in developing a legal framework for the delivery of health services, including recommendations on the Public Health Law. The Hogan Lovells-ISLP team has advised on the development of the law that created the Liberian Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Agency and on provisions addressing mental health, reproductive health, communicable diseases and other issues. Current projects also include work on development of special economic zone law, tax policy issues, a rail corridor infrastructure development agreement, and concession agreement enforcement.
