WASHINGTON, DC – Lawyers of Color saluted black lawyers named to its most influential lobbyists and Capitol Hill staffers lists at a reception at Hogan Lovells, an international law firm co-headquartered in London and Washington, D.C. with specialization in government regulatory, litigation, commercial litigation and arbitration, corporate, finance, and intellectual property. The firm’s honoree, Ari Q. Fitzgerald and fellow partner Lillian Hardy hosted the event where Kendra F. Brown, chief of staff to Representative G. K. Butterfield served as the honorary chairperson.

The event coincided with the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Legislative Conference. Honorees will be featured in the third edition of Lawyers of Color’s Caucus Issue. A digital version of the publication will be available on Lawyers of Color’s website in September.

Lawyers of Color’s selection committee, comprised of its fellows, advisers, and editorial staff, chose distinguished influencers who may not fit the traditional definition of a lobbyist but are on the front lines of consequential national political and policy battles. 

Lawyers of Color is a 501(c)(3) devoted to promoting diversity in the legal profession and advancing democracy and equality in marginalized communities. We celebrate attorneys of color and conduct research and studies regarding the intersection of the legal profession and social justice.
