Bold. Distinctive. Inclusive.


Our vision for Hogan Lovells is to make a meaningful, positive impact in our firm and on society and to establish ourselves as market leaders in diversity and inclusion.

Delivering on our commitments to diversity and inclusion is one of the five key strategic priorities of the firm, on a par with putting clients at the center of everything we do and enhancing profitability. We are actively creating an inclusive workplace where each of our people can thrive as their authentic self, by mitigating unconscious bias and actively creating opportunities for and supporting our colleagues. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion makes us a better law firm and helps us to deliver the best experience for our clients, attract the best talent, and drive innovation.

Our global team of eleven diversity professionals works together with seven diversity partners around the globe to deliver on these commitments using a strategy focused on:

These are the five pillars of our global D&I strategy:

Accountability

Accountability

We hold ourselves accountable with ambitious, attainable metrics by identifying external and internal goals to guide our progress, and by educating and inspiring all of our people to make meaningful investments in their colleagues.

Processes

Institutional change is our focus as we implement work allocation and other processes to ensure work and pitch opportunities are equally allocated to underrepresented lawyers.

Recruitment & retention

Recruitment & retention

We want the best and brightest talent at all levels, and will take a holistic approach to get there from briefing our recruiters on our expectations for diversity to providing billable credit hours for D&I activities to providing mentoring and sponsorship.

Individuals are the bedrock of our culture. We make available training on bias and inclusive leadership and empower allyship to ensure everyone feels they belong and can contribute as their authentic selves.
