Professor Hugo Lederer (November 16, 1871, Znaim – August 1, 1940, Berlin) was an Austro-Hungarian-born German sculptor.

Lederer studied in Dresden under sculptor John Schilling from 1890, then briefly under Christian Behrens. His greatest success came in 1902 with the commission for the Bismarck Monument in the center of Hamburg. In 1919 Lederer went to the Academy of Arts in Berlin; among his students was Josef Thorak. Lederer's last major work was for the Krupp organization.

Lederer is buried in Wilmersdorfer Waldfriedhof in Stahnsdorf near Berlin.
