© 2017 Inc. 266 Vault Guide to the Top 100 Law Firms, 2018 Edition HOGAN LOVELLS LLP THE SCOOP Formed on May 1, 2010 by the merger of Hogan & Hartson and Lovells, Hogan Lovells is a global megafirm with more than 450 offices in the United States, Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. The firm boasts more than 2,600 lawyers, making it one of the largest firms around. CEO Stephen Immelt is based out of Hogan Lovells’ Baltimore and Washington, DC offices, and Deputy CEO David Hudd is based in London. Hogan’s Heroes Hogan & Hartson traced its roots to 1904, the year when trial lawyer Frank J. Hogan hung out a shingle in the nation’s capital. He skyrocketed to fame thanks to his involvement in sensational cases like the “Teapot Dome” scandal, in which he represented oil baron Edward L. Doheny, who faced charges of bribery and conspiracy to defraud the federal government (Doheny was acquitted.) Nelson Hartson, an IRS attorney, joined Hogan in 1925. Given the partners’ backgrounds, it’s no surprise Hogan & Hartson became known for its government, regulatory, and tax work. Over the years, it also developed strengths in litigation, corporate and transactional law, and intellectual property. The firm did not venture beyond the Beltway until 1984, but once it did, expansion came rapidly. By the time of the Lovells merger in 2010, Hogan & Hartson had grown to include over two dozen offices in 12 countries. Lovells’ Lawyers Hogan & Hartson had a long history, but Lovells’ was even longer. That firm dated to 1899, which is when its predecessor firm was established in London by John Spencer Lovell. In 1966, the firm joined forces with another UK stalwart Haslewoods, which had many lucrative connections within the British government. A second merger occurred in 1988 with Durrant Piesse, itself the result of a combination among well-regarded firms; Durrant had longstanding corporate relationships in the booming financial sector, as well as expertise in IP.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
