CHICAGO, Feb. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — According to Arizton‘s recent research report, Alternative Legal Service Providers Market in US – Industry Outlook and Forecast 2020-2025 is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 23% during the period 2019−2025.
Key Highlights Offered in the Report:
- The identity of the US legal industry is being refreshed and turbocharged in ways never seen before, with alternative legal service providers at the heart of all this action. The disaggregation of legal services is underway, not driven by players in the industry, but by clients.
- On average, many legal businesses and in-house legal teams are pouring in significant work and time on low-value tasks across legal functions. They are struggling to utilize talent efficiently. As this realization is increasingly dawning on those working in legal departments, they are juggling the demand from the management to operate with the same speed and efficiency as the overall enterprise.
- Organizations are increasingly implementing effective preventative and support measures, thus driving demand for litigation and investigation support.
- There is a resistance among both corporations and law firms by not altering their models to fully engage alternative legal service providers, thereby driving inefficiencies in the market.
- While alternative legal service providers have a lot to offer, they have a scattered approach when it comes to listening to client goals and concerns and communicating how they can help in maneuvering business challenges.
- Quite a few law firms use the services of alternative legal service providers via partnerships and securing aid to suitably provide services in spaces of legal research, litigation, e-discovery, and document review among others, which they traditionally offered themselves.

Alternative Legal Service Providers Market in US – Dynamics
Companies in the US have, for quite long, had a higher proportion of legal spending than other countries in the rest of the world. Companies in the country spend 170% more on these services when pitted against global companies with banking, real estate, and technology topping the list of spends by industry. The high spends are attributed to the fact that the US has a heavier litigious climate. Apart from that, it is characterized by widely varying laws and complexities in every state driving up volumes in terms of legal advice required. Further, the pay of legal practitioners also tends to be higher in the country with expensive billable hours, demonstrating demand. Another indicator of the growth of the legal industry is the reversal of the decline of legal employment and law school applications in 2018, post years of flat or deteriorating levels.
