Litigation Services

Litigation is complex and demanding. It calls for experience, decisive judgment and steady nerve. Hogan Lovells is among the best in the field.

To defend your hard-won advantage or to implement new business strategies, you need thoughtful, effective, and timely advice — advice that is pragmatic and creative, and backed by long experience.

Hailed by industry commentators as “the best of the best” — a “go to firm” with a “prestigious reputation” — we bring together industry knowledge with a real grasp of the judicial process. We’ve advised 50 of the Fortune 100, 34 of the FTSE 100, and 17 of the DAX 30, often on bet-the-company litigation. 

Our litigation group guides you through courts, tribunals, and governmental bodies, across the globe. We maintain a regular presence in courts and tribunals, with a history of success at all levels of the judicial and arbitration process — so much so that industry analyst BTI Consulting described us as a “fearsome opponent.”

On hand wherever you need us — in or out of court

Everyone likes to win. But it’s often better to stay out of court rather than in it. We always think about what’s best for you, including working to secure favorable results at the earliest possible stages of litigation or arbitration — or before. Says Chambers about us: “They always make you feel like you’re their most important client.”

We also work wherever you need us. More than 800 lawyers focused on litigation and arbitration work as one team around the world, across borders and time zones, on behalf of our clients’ most pressing matters.
