Sovereigns

Sovereigns, including governments, ministries, central banks and state-owned enterprises, play a leading role in creating, stimulating and stabilizing markets, driving innovation, and developing sustainable global economies. They require their advisors to take an experienced and nuanced approach, with appropriate sensitivity to their special concerns and perspectives.

Since 1904, Hogan Lovells has continuously been involved in some of the most consequential matters facing sovereigns in their histories. We provide our sovereigns clients, and clients working with sovereigns, with advice that is underpinned by a critical understanding of the environment in which they operate and transact.

We do this across the entire Sovereign Cycle; from advising on sovereign debt, infrastructure development and complex PPP projects, to public law issues, international arbitration and management of sovereign resources.

Our global platform and network of strategic partners connects key financial centers and emerging markets, enabling us to provide in-depth local and global advice to our sovereigns clients, and clients working with sovereigns, wherever they operate.

The combination of all of this means that we have important insight into the evolving concerns and perspectives of our sovereign clients and their private sector partners, and we bring this to bear in every interaction we have in order to achieve successful outcomes. It’s part of our DNA.
