We innovate in how we deliver our services
The world is changing. So are we. In tune with client priorities, we are always looking to enhance our mix of services and how we deliver them.
Legal Service Delivery
Our dedicated global Legal Service Delivery function seamlessly brings together legal project management and alternative delivery models, leveraging people, process and technology. For example, our dashboard reports provide transparency and predictability on fees to clients. And our process maps help to graphically guide clients, advisors and third parties through complex deals. We've developed a range of alternative delivery solutions that help us make sure that the work we do is resourced cost-effectively and priced thoughtfully while being delivered at the expected high service quality. Our Legal Services Centre (Birmingham, UK) and our Global Business Services Centres (Louisville, US and Johannesburg, South Africa) form part of our approach to continuously improve and extend the services we offer our clients in an innovative, pragmatic and strategically sensible way.
We know that technology, used well, can help us perform better. Across our practices we are applying advanced technologies, such as machine learning and other types of artificial intelligence, to review documents, prepare litigation outcome assessments, help surface new insights, and realize other efficiencies. A multi-disciplinary team including lawyers and technologists is constantly assessing the potential of such technologies to create value for our clients, and is available to share insights with them.
Our growing portfolio of online resources combine our know-how, talent, and technology to provide clients with additional ways to access our services on a day-to-day basis. These include:
We innovate in the way we run our own business
We’re a different kind of law firm, and that extends to how we run our own business. Our people work as a single team to deliver excellence to clients while supported by a wide range of forward-looking programs and policies:
Our firm wide agile working policy; our longstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion; and our market leading citizenship initiatives that involve every person in our firm are only some of the reasons why Hogan Lovells is one of the most innovative law firms and legal employers.
Developing our people
Developing our existing and future leaders is one of the best ways to ensure we continue to innovate. This year we won the Financial Times' People Innovation award in Europe for our global Business Leadership course. Ensuring that we develop our people to be the best advisors in their field is crucial. Supporting them to fulfill their potential is central to our business.
Focused support for innovation and new ventures
And we have a firm wide commitment to help every member of our firm grasp the opportunities that change brings: for them; the firm; and most importantly for our clients. Our Innovation and New Ventures team is our global innovation hub and business incubator, focused on helping people to test and develop their ideas and actively promoting the experimentation and collaboration needed to bring fresh solutions to our clients.
