Hogan Lovells US LLP
Houston, Texas

OUR GLOBAL PRACTICE. Hogan Lovells is one of the world's leading law firms. With more than 2,500 lawyers operating out of more than 45 offices in the United States, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, we have one of the world’s truly global practices. Our distinctive market position is founded upon our exceptional breadth of practice, deep industry knowledge, and "one team" global approach.

THE HOUSTON OFFICE. Home to 27 Fortune 500 companies (the second highest number in the United States) and widely known as the energy capital of the world, Houston demands — and Hogan Lovells provides — sophisticated litigators, transactional, intellectual property and regulatory lawyers. Our litigators have deep experience and are adept at resolving complicated disputes both locally and abroad. Our transactional lawyers have vast experience in acquiring, developing, financing, and selling energy and infrastructure projects and companies and in negotiating long-term supply and hedging agreements. That's why major players in a wide spectrum of industries repeatedly turn to our Houston lawyers for advice.

Our clients include a global oil and gas major; large infrastructure funds and developers; national oil companies; financial institutions; global engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractors; a large foreign-owned petrochemical refiner; and domestic offshore drilling companies with assets spanning the globe. Hogan Lovells' Houston office offers a wealth of experience in successfully handling highly technical tort, intellectual property, and commercial matters involving multiple parties and jurisdictions, and the application of foreign and domestic law.

The key to our success has been our people, and accordingly we place a high priority on recruiting talented men and women of ability and character. The common thread that unites us is a shared commitment to fostering the firm’s tradition of uncompromising excellence in the representation of clients, collegiality in our dealings with each other, and service to our community.

SUMMER PROGRAM. The summer associate program in the Houston office provides law students with a realistic and enjoyable introduction to their legal career. Our program is designed to ensure extensive interaction with associates and partners, and to offer practical learning opportunities through work assignments and opportunities to observe experienced lawyers. Summer associates also have the opportunity to participate in a retreat held in the Washington, DC office along with summer associates from all of our US offices, where they get to know their colleagues through small group dinners and fun team building exercises. At the retreat, firm leaders share insights about the firm’s vision and values, commitment to diversity, pre-eminent practices, management, firm finance and strategic plans for the future.

ASSOCIATE LIFE & DEVELOPMENT. As an associate at Hogan Lovells, you can expect to be challenged. We are committed to excellence in all we do, including our associate training program. We combine practical experience with a world-class training and development program. Partners look for opportunities to provide associates with hands-on experience and take time to educate associates on the practical skills necessary to excel. To prepare associates for these opportunities, the firm offers an in-house training program through the Winthrop Academy that teaches associates the fundamental tools for the highest quality legal practice, as well as professional development programs to enable all Hogan Lovells lawyers to achieve their full career potential. Each practice group also organizes specialized training sessions geared toward its particular area of law.

PRO BONO. Our pro bono practice draws on the experience of our professionals worldwide to improve the lives of those without access to justice or the means to hire lawyers, and to meet the legal needs of charities and nonprofit social enterprises. Providing high-quality legal services to those most in need and least able to pay is an integral part of being a lawyer. We take that responsibility seriously at Hogan Lovells and others have noticed. For example, we were recently listed among Law360’s Top Ten Pro Bono Firms for dedicating a robust number of lawyer hours and securing significant wins in pro bono matters. Additionally, the firm recently recognized the Houston office’s representation of undocumented juvenile immigrants in immigration proceedings through Kids In Need of Defense.
