From our beginnings in 1904 as a single lawyer operation to our status as one of the top international law firms, Hogan & Hartson carries on a tradition of excellence established by our founder, Frank J. Hogan. As the economy and our clients’ businesses have globalized, so, too, has Hogan & Hartson. What remains constant, however, are the transcending professional and cultural values that distinguish us from other major law firms: our unwavering commitment to client service, excellence, integrity, community service, and diversity, and our recognized industry focus and team-oriented approach.
With over 1,000 lawyers practicing in 23 offices worldwide, we work seamlessly across multiple practices and offices to provide our clients with exceptional service and creative advice. Working at the intersection of business and government, both domestically and internationally, we help our clients structure and complete their projects and transactions; vigorously represent their interests in all kinds of complex litigation, arbitration, and dispute resolution; guide them and their businesses through the maze of government regulation; and secure, protect, and defend their intellectual property. Because our clients’ success and satisfaction are paramount goals for all Hogan & Hartson lawyers, our teams create a working experience that evolves into enduring relationships.
The firm is consistently ranked among the top global law firms in industry surveys and major publications. The Lawyer Global 100 lists Hogan & Hartson as a "Top 25" global law firm by revenue (October 2005). Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business ranks several of our offices and practices #1 in their markets (May 2005). The American Lawyer has twice recognized our litigation department’s excellence in its biennial survey of the best litigation departments among the top 200 U.S. law firms. We were named to the publication’s “Distinguished Dozen” (January 2006), and we were ranked among the top 15 departments in the country (January 2004). PLC Global Counsel 3000 observes, “In less than 15 years, Hogan & Hartson has established itself as one of the most committed of the U.S. law firms in Europe” (2003).
Through first-hand experience, our clients know that Hogan & Hartson lawyers share a genuine respect and affection for one another as well as a commitment to help others and give back to the communities in which we live and work. Over 30 years ago, Hogan & Hartson became the first major law firm in the world to establish a separate practice devoted exclusively to providing pro bono legal services. Today, the firm has one of the leading and most active pro bono programs in the nation for which we have received widespread recognition and acclaim.
