03 March 2014
3 March 2014 - Hogan Lovells is to set up a Legal Services Centre in Birmingham to deliver high quality cost-effective legal services for aspects of its client work. The Centre will operate as an extension of the firm's London office.
Following the recent announcement about setting up a Business Services Centre in Johannesburg, the Legal Services Centre further demonstrates the firm's commitment to providing innovative and cost effective solutions for delivering services.
According to Hogan Lovells regional managing partner for the UK and Africa, Susan Bright:
"We are constantly looking for cost-effective solutions for our clients in relation to fee arrangements and the provision of legal advice. Hogan Lovells has for many years been a leader in this area, with initiatives such as our real estate outsourcing service, our Alicante office for Europe-wide trademark portfolio work, our bespoke offshoring arrangements for certain litigation projects and our use of alumni, contract lawyers and paralegals for a range of work including document reviews for litigation and corporate projects. The Legal Services Centre will extend the range of options we already offer. We are delighted to be establishing the Centre in Birmingham which has a significant and high quality legal community."
The office capabilities will be developed over time in response to client demand but it is expected to comprise up to 20 lawyers initially. London partner Alan Greenough will be moving to Birmingham to manage the office which is expected to be established by autumn this year.
