Denver Attorney Gina Rodriguez to be Featured in Law Week's Colorado's Top Women Lawyers
CWBA member Regina (Gina) Rodriguez is an experienced litigator with Hogan Lovells. Gina’s professional accomplishments were recently recognized when she was admitted as Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. Fellowship in ACTL is by invitation only, and is limited to “those experienced trial lawyers who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality” (https://www.actl.com/home/membership). This description certainly encapsulates Gina’s career handling complex product liability, False Claims Act, and commercial cases, among many other matters.
Gina is also extremely active in many community endeavors, particularly efforts to support diversity and inclusion and advance women in the legal profession. She was spotlighted in the May 7, 2018, issue of Law Week Colorado in the Women’s Roundtable. The participants in the annual roundtable were women in private practice and in-house and government roles. They came together to discuss their career paths, their views of the current landscape for women lawyers, which initiatives have been successful, and recommendations for next steps to continue moving forward. Gina highlighted Hogan Lovells’s efforts to ensure 25 percent of its partners are women, a goal it met this year.
Gina participated in the 2017 Corporate Board Bound cohort with the Women’s Leadership Foundation. Corporate Board Bound provides mentoring and leadership training for women preparing to join a corporate board of directors. She has served on the Board of Governors of the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation, the Board of Directors of Latinas First Foundation, and the Board of Directors of the Denver School of Science and Technology. She was named a 2018 Top Latino Lawyer by Latino Leaders. She is also active in pro bono work, having partnered with three other Hogan Lovells lawyers on an asylum case for four Guatemalan children.
