Mayer Brown launches global IBOR Transition Task Force

In anticipation of the imminent transition from the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) as a universal benchmark interest rate in 2021, and the global effort to find robust rates to replace LIBOR and other interbank offered rates (IBORs) underway, Mayer Brown has formally launched a dedicated global multidisciplinary task force to provide comprehensive and coordinated advice on the latest market developments and most significant issues facing banks, companies and investors.

The firm’s cross-practice IBOR Transition Task Force is composed of more than 80 lawyers across the firm’s three regions – Asia, Europe and the Americas – and across eight practice areas. The global team of lawyers will keep pace with changes and provide timely updates.

According to Jeremy Clay, Mayer Brown’s managing partner, “While efforts for an equitable and lasting solution are currently underway worldwide, this process is both complex—involving multiple regulatory regimes across dozens of countries and currencies—and one in which the stakes are enormous. Mayer Brown’s global presence, subject matter and product competence across various affected markets, and use of technology solutions, including artificial intelligence, to facilitate the timely collection, analysis and remediation of related contracts and other documents, uniquely enable the firm to provide clients with integrated and global IBOR transition solutions.”
