Describe what your organization does in two sentences.
Hogan Lovells is a global law firm. We represent clients in every major market and on every continent, supported by a network of more than 2,500 lawyers in 23 countries.

Our clients are primarily corporations, governmental organizations, non-profits, and other large institutions.
One fact you may not know about my organization is…
Hogan Lovells was formed by the 2010 combination of two venerable law firms – Hogan & Hartson, a Washington, D.C. firm founded in 1904, and Lovells, a London firm founded in 1899.
What sets your business apart from others in the way you attract and retain talent?
Apart from offering lawyers the opportunity to work with many of the world’s largest, most high-profile corporations, Hogan Lovells has long been at the forefront of diversity and progress in the legal profession. We offer myriad work benefits, designed to create fulfilling careers and fulfilling lives.
What do you like about being an investor in Greater Louisville Inc.?
For any business moving to a new location, it is important to become established quickly. As a relative newcomer to Louisville (our Shelbyville Road Global Business Services Support center was officially opened in November 2016) we wanted to contact the local business community in the fastest and most efficient way possible. There is no better way to do that than through GLI.
How does your organization engage in the community?
Community engagement (what we call “Citizenship”) is a very important part of our identity. All of our people, from our CEO down, are expected to give 25 hours per year of service to our charity partners or to pro-bono matters. Here in Louisville, we selected Boys & Girls Haven as our Touch charity partner, but our people have also donated time and resources to other organizations including Dare to Care and Metro Animal Services.
