Hogan Lovells U.S. Careers

See yourself
transitioning to the next level.

“The firm has a comprehensive transition program to assist lawyers who have been elevated to partner. Through this program, I have received top notch leadership and business development assistance from senior partners and outside experts.”

- Michael Heyl, Partner, Washington, D.C.

Focus

I practice U.S. FDA law with a focus on medical device compliance. This has allowed me to work not only on regulatory issues, but also on white collar criminal matters and corporate transactional work.

Getting to know Hogan Lovells

I chose the firm because of its dynamic practice breadth. Hogan Lovells has a tremendous reputation for regulatory work, which is exactly what I was looking to do. The firm also impressed me with the caliber of people that I met ― each was well rounded and personable ― the type of people that people anyone would want to work with.

I expected to be challenged and to learn from some of the best in the field. I also was a beneficiary of the firm’s rotation program. I came to the firm seeking to do environmental work. However, I entered the associate rotation program and found a home in the food and drug practice area. This experience has challenged me and has far exceeded my expectations. But for the firm’s rotation program, I would not be doing what I am today.

I also have had the opportunity to meet and work with great people around the globe. As part of the partner transition program, I have met new partners from many of our U.S. and international offices. As the first class of partners elevated at Hogan Lovells, we all feel a common bond.

Experience

The firm has a comprehensive transition program to assist lawyers who have been elevated to partner. Through this program, I have received top notch leadership and business development assistance from senior partners and outside experts. These programs also have afforded me the opportunity to meet all of the new partners worldwide.

Pro bono

I have been involved with teaching Law Day for students at the Thurgood Marshall Academy ― a law-based charter school in Southeast Washington, D.C. Law Day is a series of interactive sessions that deal with civil, criminal, and other types of law practice. Seeing the students respond to the lessons and participate in mock trials is very rewarding. The program allows me to be a part of the community.
