Continental Europe

One Hogan Lovells. Many Perspectives

Our diversity efforts span Continental Europe. We have partner diversity champions in our local offices to support our regional activity. We have signed national diversity charters in both Germany and France with more countries to follow. And we’re particularly proud of our “Women@HL” program, an award-winning training program aimed at promoting more women to the partnership and providing career development and networking opportunities through a series of events.
