No more laborious LIBOR Hogan Lovells launches Artificial Intelligence-based LIBOR solution

London, 10 May 2019 – Hogan Lovells, in collaboration with FTI Consulting and Cognia Law, has launched Hogan Lovells Engage: LIBOR – a new solution to combat the significant legal and administrative challenge of dealing with LIBOR re-papering.

The innovation combines market-leading legal expertise with legal project management, and advanced technology to offer a more cost-effective ‘one stop shop’ for clients preparing for the discontinuation of LIBOR post-2021. It can also be used in conjunction with the transition of other benchmarks such as EURIBOR.

The Artificial Intelligence (AI) based process uses Kira, alongside Hogan Lovells and FTI's Contract Intelligence offering.  It significantly reduces the time and cost involved in managing complex re-papering requirements by combining complementary technologies to deliver a complete solution rather than clients having to use a series of 'standalone' tools. 

The Hogan Lovells Legal Delivery Centre in Birmingham will work together with Cognia Law as one team to manage and complete the projects as one seamless end to end service. The collaboration with Cognia also creates access to multi-lingual resource and the ability to scale up to a headcount of 400 where needed. 

Commenting on the new Hogan Lovells Engage: LIBOR, Global Head of Hogan Lovells Financial Institutions Sector Sharon Lewis said:

"This exciting collaboration brings together best in class to deliver the most innovative solution for businesses facing LIBOR transition amidst much remaining uncertainty as to how the likely new benchmark rates will operate.

"Our global team is uniquely placed with the deep industry knowledge and connections, and product and deal structuring experience to deliver a project of this magnitude and complexity."

Stephen Allen, Global Head of Legal Operations, Innovation Lead, London, added:

"Hogan Lovells has a history of innovating to deliver market firsts and we are proud to be the first law firm to package and offer a premium LIBOR solution, at the cutting edge of alternative delivery solutions. We, along with our collaboration partners, have invested significantly in building an unparalleled solution for clients."
