Global law firm Hogan Lovells has launched its Artificial Intelligence (AI) Engage Hub, a free, integrated resource that centralizes AI insights, regulatory developments, and events, hosted on bespoke thought leadership platform Engage Premium.
The Hub’s content is organized into key AI trends including AI governance, data and privacy, copyright, public policy, M&A, and disputes, also highlighting AI’s bourgeoning uses across the technology and telecoms, life sciences and health care, financial services, mobility and transportation, space, and other sectors. The Hub serves as a central resource for all AI-related content, and includes an original, interactive map that provides current updates to AI regulatory frameworks across the globe, emphasizing Hogan Lovells’ unique market strengths in the rapidly developing field of artificial intelligence.
Hogan Lovells advises numerous AI processing and design companies, as well as entities developing the software and neural networks that form the building blocks of machine learning. The firm’s AI group has more than 100 lawyers spanning various practices, industries, and regions leading the discussion around the impact of AI on businesses.
“AI has the power to transform every industry. As machine learning technologies continue to evolve, businesses need dynamic, sophisticated compliance strategies,” said Hogan Lovells global regulatory partner Mark Brennan, who leads the firm’s technology and telecoms sector. “Our global team has a proven track record of advising companies across the entire AI ecosystem with practical, commercial solutions, and we are pleased to launch our innovative AI Hub.”
Former Hogan Lovells chair Leo von Gerlach, who serves at the forefront of the firm’s AI initiative as a partner in Hogan Lovells’ intellectual property, media and technology practice in Hamburg, noted: “As AI technologies continue to become more and more prevalent, one of our clients’ main challenges is keeping pace with the full breadth and depth of AI regulation for their global networks. Through the AI Hub, we offer a truly integrated, global approach to AI governance, presenting clients a one-stop shop to understand each region’s AI-focused regulatory framework. In the EU, for instance, the regulatory regime seeks to strike a balance between encouraging an innovative business agenda while building trust among the public that AI laws will address the most significant risks to individuals and society; our Hub will help clients to fully understand the scope of AI enforcement across their global business ventures.”
Corporate and finance partner Sherry Gong, a lawyer in Hogan Lovells’ Beijing office who serves at the helm of the technology and telecoms industry in China, said: “We have spent the past several months judiciously advising clients on how global frameworks are adopting AI regulations, and how that may affect their business. Some of the world’s best-known brands and products are looking to Hogan Lovells to advise them on AI in relation to medical devices, governance, ethics, export controls, copyright and patent protection, as well as global supply chain impact, disputes, transactions, and investments.”
Hogan Lovells litigation and regulatory partner Valerie Kenyon, who co-leads the firm’s global products law team in the UK, advises top clients on AI enforcement and compliance obligations and evolving regulatory and litigation risks. She added: “As existing global laws continue to dictate business obligations, addressing unique compliance challenges in the AI context is increasingly a top priority for our clients. Regulators are consistently passing and implementing new AI regulations. To help our clients to stay ahead we encourage the use of our one-of-a-kind, interactive map that provides real-time updates and enforcement level indicators for regional AI regimes across the globe. This unique offering of global insights means our clients can meet fast-paced developments, and mitigate risk. It's all about getting ahead of tomorrow’s challenges before they arise. This important offering is one way we are investing in tech and innovation to bring best value as well as best expertise to our clients.”
