Pro Bono

In 2020, we celebrated our 50th anniversary of having a dedicated pro bono practice at Hogan Lovells and reached a significant milestone of more than 2 million hours of pro bono service.

In the past five decades, we have represented thousands of individuals, groups, and organizations throughout the world in an effort to tackle miscarriages of justice and to challenge discriminatory public policy.

In a year as unprecedented and challenging as 2020, we are proud to have continued this legacy and supported many notable pro bono efforts.

Curtis Flowers

We represented Curtis Flowers, an innocent man who was sentenced to death and spent more than two decades in prison for murders he did not commit. The charges were dismissed as prejudicial and Curtis is now free.

The Felix Project

We advised The Felix Project, London’s biggest distributor of surplus food, on its acquisition of FareShare’s London operations. The deal makes Felix the largest end-to-end food redistribution charity in Europe.

Nonprofit Groups & Migrants

We represented several Central American nonprofit groups and individual migrants in successfully challenging the U.S. third-country transit rule, which effectively prevented those entering the country across its southern border from seeking asylum.

The Kraft Group

We represented The Kraft Group in overcoming a number of obstacles to transport vital personal protective equipment from China to the United States for use in health care facilities by frontline workers working to combat COVID-19.
