Our commitment to being a diverse and inclusive place to work is at the core of our vision and our values. Hogan Lovells is committed to enhancing our diversity and ensuring we are an inclusive working environment that attracts, retains and nurtures its people from diverse backgrounds.
A practical, straight-talking approach to law. Open, honest and deep relationships with prestigious clients. Training that keeps on evolving. A global community where everyone is on the same wavelength – but always encouraged to be themselves. This is the dynamic that sets Hogan Lovells apart. Everyone pushes themselves to find smarter, bolder solutions; there is a collective desire to share knowledge and work collaboratively; and as a global firm, this applies no matter where we operate. With 2,500 lawyers working in over 45 offices across 26 countries, the close-knit culture that exists between these offices is part of our everyday lives. And now, you can experience this first-hand. The quality of our people. The strength of our global network. The boldness of our ambition. These are all reasons why we are able to attract high profile, multinational clients. It’s our exceptional breadth of practice areas that really makes us stand out. For you, this means we have a variety of potential disciplines to explore across Corporate, Finance, Government Regulatory, Intellectual Property and Litigation, Arbitration & Employment. It’s a distinctive approach, and one that helps us give clients what they want even before they realise they want it. “Looking after our people is not only the right thing to do, but also, a healthy, engaged and resilient workforce is more productive, efficient and able to provide clients with the service they expect from us,” concludes Alison Unsted, Head of Global Diversity, Inclusion, and Wellbeing Strategy. Our Disability and Wellbeing Network (DAWN) promotes a working environment that is inclusive and welcoming to everyone regardless of physical and mental health condition. DAWN aims to raise the firm’s awareness of long-term health conditions and disability specific issues through awareness raising events, both in relation to disability and in relation to the broader subject of wellbeing. The network runs various seminars that provide insight into specific health conditions for example, "Understanding Mental Illness and Developing Resiliency" and wellbeing events which focus on subjects such as healthy eating, hydration and resilience. We also hold inspirational speaker events where we invite role models. Previous speakers have included; Andy Barrow, wheelchair rugby player, who has been playing wheelchair rugby for over 15 years and has competed in three Olympic Games; Andy Campbell, adventurer, whose adventures include making first ski descents of Alaskan peaks, paragliding over Africa and trekking through the Himalayas in a wheelchair, raising millions of pounds for disabled charities; Graeme Obree, champion cyclist, who talked about the thinking and challenges which influenced his cycling career and his private battle with depression and bipolar disorder.
We believe that a culture of inclusion which respects and values the diversity of all our people significantly enhances our ability to provide excellent legal services to our clients. Celebrating the strengths of being a diverse and inclusive place to work is at the core of our vision and our values
