"Consider the type of work you want to do and decide whether a large, international law firm is a good fit for you."
- Ben Lewis, Senior Associate, New York
Litigation and arbitration are my areas of focus, with an emphasis on insurance and reinsurance matters.
Getting to know Hogan Lovells
I started as a Trainee Solicitor in the London office of legacy Lovells in 2005. I qualified as a solicitor in 2007. After completing law school in the United States, I re-started as an associate in the New York office in 2009.
After I decided on a career in the law, I spoke to a few older and wiser lawyers who recommended the firm. I did some further due diligence and suspected it might be a good place to work and a good fit for me. My suspicions were confirmed during a vacation scheme in the London office and I was very happy to be offered a position.
Word to the wise
I would consider the type of work you want to do and decide whether a large, international law firm is a good fit for you.
I began my law career as a trainee solicitor in London with Hogan Lovells in 2005. In 2009, after receiving my J.D. from Northwestern University School of Law, I joined Hogan Lovells’ New York office as an associate. I focus my practice on commercial litigation and arbitration, in particular the representation of insurance and reinsurance companies (both life and non-life) and have litigation and arbitration experience in both the UK and the United States. I also represent other financial institutions on transactional and regulatory matters.
