Erica Godwin is an Accredited Legal Project Management Professional (ALPMP) and an attorney with active bar admissions in the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Erica added structure, process, and efficiencies to global case teams.
Erica became a certified Legal Project Manager (LPM Institute) in 2015 and since that time has focused her career on formally implementing legal project management principles and process improvements across a variety of practice areas and matter types within the large law firm environment. At Hogan Lovells, Erica leads the effort to expand legal project management across the fourteen regulatory practices comprising the global regulatory practice group.
