A new breed of Alternative Legal Service Providers (ALSPs) is entering the scene. These providers are considered “third generation” because they take the most innovative approach to legal service delivery. On top of having the right people, processes, and technology to meet a variety of needs – third generation ALSPs can also generate legal business intelligence. This is truly transformative, as it provides actionable insights for not only the legal team, but also the entire business. When ALSPs first emerged two decades ago, legal demands were changing as technologies advanced and data became more difficult to manage. Having outside support to navigate digital changes quickly proved beneficial from both cost and efficiency standpoints. Competencies have continued to evolve alongside legal tech sophistication. Expanded use cases today now include managed services, legal tech consulting, compliance, flexible staffing, contract analysis, legal spend management, business advising, data breach response, and class action administration.
