Mitchell P. Reich

Mitchell P. Reich focuses on Supreme Court and appellate litigation. He has filed numerous merits and certiorari-stage briefs in the Supreme Court on subjects ranging from personal jurisdiction and international arbitration to education and sovereign immunity. Mitch is adept at cutting through difficult legal issues to find creative solutions and presenting them in a clear and compelling style.

Before joining Hogan Lovells, Mitch clerked for Associate Justice Elena Kagan of the U.S. Supreme Court and Chief Judge Merrick B. Garland of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. He also worked in the Department of Justice's Office of Legal Counsel, where he advised the White House, the Attorney General, and federal agencies on major questions of constitutional, statutory, and administrative law.

Mitch graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, where he was President of the Harvard Law Review and a member of the winning team in the Ames Moot Court Competition.
