LIBOR replacement in ISDA contracts between Banks and their clients

Most derivatives contracts currently written use ISDA contractual language and most of these also refer to LIBOR as the benchmark interest rates. By 2021 it has been mandated that LIBOR will be replaced, so there is a massive repapering exercise at each bank and counterparty to examine the ISDA contracts, identify a replacement and agree this with the client. There are three types of contracts that matter,1-those that expire before 2021, 2- those that expire after 2021 but didn't know about LIBOR replacement and 3-than that expire after 2021 but did know about it.
