Hogan Lovells announced today that it was presented with a Global Visionary Law Firm award from The International Senior Lawyers Project (ISLP). The recognition was presented at a luncheon organized by ISLP to honor its key supporters and volunteers as the organization celebrated its 10th anniversary on 1 December 2011.
The event featured a conversation between Hogan Lovells partner Joseph C. Bell and George Soros, founder of the Open Society Foundations. ISLP also presented videotaped thanks from President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia and actor Matt Damon, who thanked Hogan Lovells by name.
The professional film photographer travels the globe with his wife and son, shooting Hollywood actors and big-budget sets, and counts stars such as Matt Damon and Ryan Reynolds as friends.
Boland, who spends most of his time working in countries such as Turkey, Romania, Germany and South Africa, said his favourite A-list actor who he's worked with was Damon.
"He's just a friend, you know. It's a circus for us, we're all away from our families and friends so we're all hanging out together," he said.
"Guys like Matty and Brendan Fraser and Ryan Reynolds are absolute sweethearts, they're so professional and they help out."
