Lillian S. Hardy Profile Image

Lillian S. Hardy is a Partner in the Investigations, White Collar & Fraud practice of Hogan Lovells’ Washington, D.C. office. Her practice focuses on government investigations and parallel civil litigation for clients in industries including technology, life sciences, aerospace and defense, financial services, consumer products, retail, and education.

In a large-scale investigation or inquiry, clients need to identify core issues and develop strategies to efficiently resolve them. Lillian Hardy has managed wide-ranging investigations for clients on five continents with these goals in mind. She also works with companies to develop and improve their compliance programs.

Lillian focuses her practice on Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) investigations, economic sanctions, cybersecurity and data privacy-related investigations, consumer financial protection enforcement actions, and other government investigations.

Clients in the life sciences industry turn to Lillian for representation in investigations and whistleblower litigation involving the Anti-Kickback Statute, the False Claims Act, and the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Lillian's data privacy and cybersecurity know-how comes from managing incident response, remediation, fact investigation, and notification and reporting obligations in breach incidents for Fortune 500 companies.

Lillian's business-minded and practical client service approach was honed during her year-long in-house secondment at a Fortune 500 multinational conglomerate, where she focused on compliance.

Lillian has a strong commitment to firm service and community involvement. She serves on the firm’s recruitment committee, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau task force, and is heavily involved in the firm’s diversity initiatives.  In addition to her private sector work, Lillian has a robust pro bono practice and dedicates hundreds of hours each year to representing indigent clients.  Over the past few years, she has been recognized for securing release of three wrongly-convicted Maryland men that had each served more than 37 years in prison.

Lillian has been with the firm since 2008 after first practicing in the San Francisco, California office of another international law firm.  She is a proud alum of University of California, Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall) (J.D., 2006) and Spelman College (B.A., 2003).
