Demystify the ‘New Law’ space: Introducing the Guide to Alternative Service Providers for Legal Teams

The legal services market in the UK is arguably the most progressive and fast-changing in the world. The emergence of Alternative Legal Service Providers over the last decade is an important part of the change. It has prompted general counsel to think differently about how they meet their need for external legal support and caused traditional law firms to re-evaluate, and in some cases change, their business models.

ALSPs use people, process and technology in different ways to solve legal problems. While the way in which they do this may differ, what has become clear is that they are not going away, and we are delighted to partner with Crafty Counsel as they demystify this fast-growing and exciting segment of the legal services market.
