"We do a lot of wild and challenging cases, so we need team members who are fearless and ready to help each other out when a case blows up. It's hard work, but a lot of fun. And it builds strong ties and great friendships."
- Tom Connally, Partner, Northern Virginia
Getting to know Hogan Lovells
Every firm talks about teamwork and collegiality, but not every firm is truly team-oriented. Our ability to assemble teams of lawyers with a vast array of skills, experience, and global reach separates us from competitors in the marketplace. So our culture of collegiality is directly linked to our business model. Teamwork here is real, and makes us both happy and successful.
I’m an advisor, manager, and strategist. I counsel clients, and I manage and direct the work of the outstanding lawyers on our team. I still get to do some advocacy writing on my own, which I always enjoy. And I still love going to court whenever I get a chance.
My friendships with my partners and teammates are deep and sustaining, and have grown far beyond our work together at the firm. The chance to work with and mentor the wonderful associates on our team is among the most rewarding work I do.
Word to the wise
When you talk with Hogan Lovells lawyers, learn about their practices, but also ask about their lives outside the office. You'll like what you hear.
