It can be hard to tell one top law firm from another. All claim to work with prestigious clients on major international deals. All declare that they offer great training, prospects and support. But look a little closer at Hogan Lovells, and you'll see there are many things that set us apart from the rest.
We're practical with our advice. Bold with our solutions. We connect deeply with our clients and with each other. We bring emotional as well as legal intelligence to the issues. We apply business know-how that's on a par with our technical expertise. It's a distinctive approach that helps us give clients what they want even before they realise they want it.
Then there's the exceptional breadth of our practice areas, the in-depth industry knowledge our lawyers develop and the high quality of our people, across a wide geographical reach. Not forgetting development that gives our people the confidence to do things differently.

A trial to determine whether assets held in trust are amenable to enforcement will take place in London in 2017.
