About the Chambers Alternative Legal Service Providers Legal Guide 2023

Welcome to the Chambers Alternative Legal Service Providers Guide 2023. Use the search functionality above to search the world’s leading providers of outsourced and alternative legal services. 

Chambers ALSP Guide identifies and ranks the most innovative organisations in the alternative legal services market, delivering indispensable insights and enabling decision makers to secure the talent that is right for them.   

With the proliferation of alternative legal services providers, clients can now choose between a broad range of businesses offering their services for tasks traditionally handled by law firms. Utilising service centres in low-cost jurisdictions and in-house technology, these providers are often a more efficient and cost-effective option without sacrificing quality. 

The 2023 guide includes a significant number of new organisations featured in our ranking tables, which cover Flexible Legal Staffing, Contract Lifecycle Management, Litigation Services and Law Firm LPOs. We also have two market-specific rankings tables in Spain and the Asia-Pacific region. 

The report is the result of interviews with the service providers themselves, their clients and third-party market insiders, and the analysis of qualitative feedback concerning technical ability, client service and value for money.

Chambers ALSP Guide 2023: Summary

Flexible Legal Staffing

Flexible staffing providers ranked

Flexible legal staffing is one of the original subsets of the alternative legal services sector. Founding figures Axiom and Lawyers on Demand have been joined by new entrants to the market, adding to the diversity of choice for clients.  

Contract lifecycle management

CLM service providers featured

Considered the mainstay of legal work outsourced to third-party service providers, contract lifecycle management (CLM) platforms allow in-house legal departments to unlock value by shifting commoditised but often time-consuming and volume-intensive tasks to LPO providers and law companies.

Litigation Services

Recent years have seen the launch of many new alternative legal services providers, including captive platforms launched by law firms. A number of leading firms in the UK and USA have launched their own alternative services to clients, ranging from flexible staffing and managed legal services through to more novel models aggregating third-party services into composite solutions for clients.  

As a ranked firm you are invited to take an enhanced profile which is accessed directly from the ranking table.
