Breaking Tradition: How New Law is Challenging Big Law

As clients adapt the way they source and purchase legal services, competition and collaboration among new and traditional providers is increasing. In the decade since the Great Recession, when alternative options really came onto the scene with the promise of offering a better way, the numbers and types of providers have exploded. Over the next year, we aim to bring clarity around who those alternative providers are, what they are offering, who they are representing, where they get their talent and what piece of the market they have and could attain. You\'ll meet the players, hear from clients, see examples of collaboration, learn the offerings and gain clarity into this rapidly growing segment of the legal services market.

Last week, e-discovery provider Epiq announced that it was implementing a supplemental staffing service called Epiq Counsel, geared toward plugging attorney-sized holes inside of corporate legal departments. And, as organizations continue to struggle with sizable workloads and limited hiring budgets, it’s possible that other providers in the legal space could decide that it makes good business sense to follow in Epiq’s footsteps.
