For Growing Businesses FAQs

What is an alternative legal service provider?

Alternative legal service providers (ALSPs) are non-law-firm providers with purpose-built delivery services that deliver legal support work at a lower cost than traditional law firms. ALSPs are growing in popularity as businesses look for ways to access legal support quickly, effortlessly, and more cost-effectively in way that mirrors their organisations rapidly changing needs and helps them to remain agile while safeguarding against risk. ALSPs can offer several advantages over traditional law firms, including better value, increased flexibility, access to specialised expertise to handle more complex legal matters and support on time consuming regulatory tasks such as company reporting, compliance, and governance.
