Session Details

The Rise of Alternative Legal Service Providers & Their Impact on How Legal Work Gets Done

Corporate law departments are no longer the only ones leveraging nontraditional legal services from outside providers. Many law firms are now also using Alternative Legal Service Providers (ALSPs) to address client demands, control costs, help with scaling, and to provide access to technologies and professional expertise. This panel discussion will cover the current landscape for the use of ALSPs, debate the driving force and considerations behind engaging them, discuss supervisory obligations, and include practical guidance for law firms and legal departments seeking to incorporate ALSPs into their existing business models.
