The State of the Legal Market

Thursday, May 17, 2018 2:00pm - 3:00pm EDT  
Host: ALA Legal Marketplace
By: Nicholas Bruch, Senior Analyst, Legal, ALM Intelligence and Steve Kovalan, Esq., Senior Analyst, Legal, ALM Intelligence

Much has changed in the legal market over the past decade - but much remains the same. Despite growing competition from alternative service providers, law firms still account for the lion's share of law department spending. Similarly, while much is made of clients clamoring for alternative fee arrangements, fee-for-service pricing continues to be standard practice. This continuity begs the question - when is this disruption we have all been hearing about going to happen, and what will it look like?

Join ALM Intelligence's Senior Legal Analysts, Nick Burch and Steve Kovalan Esq., as they dive deep into an analysis of the data to show you:

  • How the legal industry is indeed undergoing a significant - if subtle - shift
  • The major trends impacting the legal industry
  • ALM intelligence's perspectives on the future of the legal marketplace

Also, get a first glimpse into the recently released 2018 Am Law data!
