An integral part of the firm, Hogan Lovells' Northern Virginia office has been providing preeminent service to regional, national, and international clients since opening its doors in 1985. Our Northern Virginia lawyers are widely recognized for their experience in corporate and securities, mergers and acquisitions, technology and intellectual property, and commercial litigation.

Pro Bono – Making a Difference in Our Community
The Northern Virginia office encourages a strong commitment to pro bono work. The office staffs a monthly legal clinic in a local homeless shelter where it provides legal intake, limited representation in a variety of matters, and referral services for a wide variety of other matters. Lawyers also provide pro bono representation for matters within their own expertise, including intellectual property protection and enforcement services, corporate formation and transactional issues, and other matters involving litigation. Lawyers and staff also participate in a wide variety of other volunteer activities for local organizations as part of the firm’s commitment to global citizenship.

Associate Life and Development
As an associate at Hogan Lovells, you can expect to be challenged. You can also expect to work with people who are supportive and good-natured while maintaining the highest professional standards. The firm places a premium on associate training and feedback, and we believe that the best training is practical experience. As a result, partners look for opportunities to provide associates with hands-on experience and take time to educate associates on the practical skills necessary to excel in their practice. To prepare associates for these opportunities, the firm has created the Hogan Lovells Academy, an in-house training program that teaches associates the fundamental tools for the highest quality legal practice. Each practice group also organizes specialized training sessions geared toward its particular area of law for associates.

Summer Associate Professional Development and Training
The summer associate program in Northern Virginia 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 encourage the exploration of practice areas. Hogan Lovells offers extensive practical learning opportunities, including working closely with partners and associates who are experts in their fields, along with access to a variety of training programs to give students an introduction to law practice. Students learn from our lawyers in a range of settings, participating in skills development courses, and attending closings, depositions and hearings. In addition to internal training provided by Hogan Lovells lawyers, summer associates have both partner and associate mentors and benefit from the guidance of a large group of lawyers who involve themselves in the summer program. We also host a variety of social events throughout the summer to allow our summer associates and lawyers get to know one another on a more informal basis. Summer associates also participate in a retreat held in our Washington, DC office along with summer associates from all of our U.S. 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. Partners speak with attendees about their career paths and why they love what they do.


Exemplary Citizenship is an integral part of Hogan Lovells’ culture and strategy. Our shared belief in the value of social responsibility is one of the bonds that unify us as a global firm and we seek to engage all of our offices and people, as well as our clients and neighbors, in our Citizenship programs. Through our global and local Citizenship programs we work together as a community to promote justice, opportunity, inclusion, and sustainability. The firm’s Global Citizenship Policy asks everyone at the firm to commit to at least 25 hours a year to Citizenship activities. This target covers the five pillars of our Citizenship program: Pro Bono, Diversity, Community Investment, Matched Global Giving (Touch) and Sustainability. More information about these initiatives can be found below and on our website at

Diversity and Inclusion
Our commitment to being a diverse and inclusive place to work is at the core of Hogan Lovells’ vision and values. We have a longstanding commitment to recruiting, retaining and promoting lawyers and others with diverse backgrounds and experiences. Our culture, which respects and values the diversity of all our people, significantly enhances our workplace and our ability to provide excellent legal services to our clients. To this end, we are committed to cultivating and sustaining an inclusive culture where all lawyers, regardless of race, national origin, gender, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or age, have the same opportunity to excel.

Community Investment
Our community investment initiative builds awareness within the firm and with our clients and other stakeholders about the local communities in which our firm operates and works. We support and develop projects that focus on issues of poverty and exclusion in our communities. The strength of the firm’s community affairs work lies in the excellent relationships we have forged with partnering agencies and local community leaders.

As a modern global law firm, we acknowledge our responsibility to carry out our business in a sustainable way.
