An alternative legal service provider (ALSP) is a company that offers legal services outside the traditional law firm or vendor model. ALSPs can offer a wide range of legal services, including document review, contract management, legal research, and other tasks typically performed by lawyers.
These legal service providers often incorporate legal technology and process efficiencies to give legal departments cost-effective and specialized legal solutions. They can be independent entities or operate within law firms. ALSPs are increasingly popular as clients seek more cost-effective and innovative ways to address their legal needs.
Reasons To Leverage ALSP Services
The load on legal departments grows as compliance needs evolve, and AI and ML permeate the legal industry. Legal spend is usually tightened, but even more so doing an economic downturn. ALSPs provide legal departments with great reasons to use them, from affordability to efficiency.
Incorporating ALSPs into a legal department’s operations can provide cost savings, efficiency, and specialized expertise, ultimately enhancing the department’s overall effectiveness.
