Hogan Lovells remains the best law firm in the UK for pro bono

London, 5 November 2020 – Hogan Lovells has been recognised as the best law firm in the UK for pro bono.

The firm ranked first for the second year as Legal Week marked National Pro Bono Week in the UK by publishing its UK Pro Bono Rankings 2020.

Devoting 30,500 hours to UK pro bono work in 2019, the firm is recognised for its work representing Yazidi women subjected to violence by an Australian national and member of Islamic State. Hogan Lovells acts pro bono for Lotus Flower, a UK charity led by genocide survivor Taban Shoresh, and six Yazidi survivors who were victims of sexual violence and enslaved by identified ISIS foreign fighters.

HL BaSE, the firm's award winning social impact practice and MBA-style business and social enterprise training programme, is also noted in particular for its support of Black founders of business.

Yasmin Waljee, International Pro Bono Director, said: "This is a great commendation for the firm in the UK and globally, and well deserved recognition for everyone in our pro bono team. What really matters is not the numbers of hours we commit, but the remarkable impact of the work undertaken not just by Hogan Lovells, but by all the firms listed, and those that are not."
