Cognia Law Takes the Next Step in "Redefining the Provision of Alternative Legal Services" – Adding Another Law Firm Wrapped Model to Its Managed Legal Services

London, United Kingdom, October 13, 2017 --( Cognia Law, a next-generation provider of legal, compliance, risk management and resourcing services headquartered in London, is delighted to formally announce the addition of another law‑firm‑wrapped model to the managed legal services offered to clients through a partnership with Fieldfisher LLP and its Condor Alternative Legal Solutions platform.

Cognia Law focuses on providing innovative managed legal services solutions to in-house legal and compliance functions and law firms. Clients of Cognia Law’s managed legal services range from tier 1 international investment banks and asset managers, to technology and pharmaceutical companies, international law firms and “new law” legal service providers.

Cognia Law has a proven track record focussing on managed legal services that work as an integrated extension of its clients’ legal operations. In pursuit of this, Cognia Law has set up legal delivery teams in locations specifically known for their ability to provide high quality onshore and offshore services and has formed strategic alliances with leading global legal service providers. As a result, Cognia Law offers its clients a global service that combines operational rigor and innovative technology‑assisted solutions with the legal advisory expertise of a global law firm. Notable examples of this model being Cognia Law’s alliances with Cosmich Simmons & Brown SBS in the US and Kalexius in France and Switzerland.

With the formal launch of Condor in January 2017, Fieldfisher brought to market the first genuinely integrated law‑firm‑wrapped managed legal service model – an ideal partner for Cognia Law.

Chris Georgiou, Condor CEO, comments, “The client benefits were evident in the first project that Condor worked on, encompassing the regulatory-driven EMIR variation margin repapering exercise. We are now working on MiFID II implementation, GDPR (harnessing Fieldfisher's market-leading privacy and data protection team), Brexit-related projects and commercial contract management solutions. For the first time, we are able to offer clients multi-partnered solutions working seamlessly with both Cognia Law and eClerx.”

Janet Taylor-Hall, Cognia Law CEO, adds, “Clients have long been asking for an integrated solution that offers the benefits of a leading law firm and the efficiencies of an alternative legal service provider. The model has been awarded the FT Innovative Lawyer Europe 2017 Award for Innovation in New Business and Service Delivery Models, rightly recognising its disruptive and client-centric innovation. We are delighted to be a genuinely integrated part of the model and in a position to offer it to our clients.”
