Hogan Lovells recognizes this commitment is part of our professional practice and collectively we spend 150,000+ pro bono hours per year on work to achieve lasting impact for others. The strength of our pro bono practice lies in our commitment to strategic litigation to bring about systematic change, which is complemented by ensuring we engage our commercial expertise to advise brave and pioneering individuals and nonprofits.
