Hogan Lovells appoints former DoJ litigator Justin Savage as a partner
Hogan Lovells has announced that former Department of Justice (DoJ) litigator Justin Savage will join the firm’s Washington DC office as a partner. For nearly a decade, Savage worked in the DoJ’s Environmental and Natural Resources Division, where he was senior counsel and one of the DoJ’s leading environmental trial lawyers.
Savage brings a significant amount of environmental and trial litigation experience to Hogan Lovells, having served as lead counsel in cases securing more than $5bn (£3bn) in relief. His numerous commendations include the DoJ’s highest honour, the John Marshall Award.
In recognition of his litigation expertise, Savage served as an instructor in trial advocacy and evidence at the DoJ’s National Advocacy Center. Prior to joining the DoJ, he represented Fortune 500 companies and trade associations for seven years at an environmental and litigation boutique in Washington DC.
Savage’s practice will focus on complex civil litigation and environmental matters, including enforcement actions, citizen suits and regulatory challenges.
He holds a JD from the University of Virginia and a BA from McNeese State University.
