In a simple and visual way, we are connecting the components of the ALSP world for the in-house community. Our dynamic guide illustrates and categorises ALSPs, bringing clarity to the landscape. Whilst the handy Category Finder helps to find the right solution for your problem.

The why behind the (A)LSP Circuit Board

Following conversations with the Crafty Counsel community at the beginning of 2021, we were struck by the distinct disconnect between in-house teams and the world of ALSPs. Many working within in-house legal felt that they didn’t know where to start. They knew that there should be a category of support which was not a law firm, new internal legal hire, or pure tech solution - but what was it? They knew that their legal team was not meeting its potential, but why, and what were the options to help?

With a lack of resources aimed at clients or buyers, we built the (A)LSP Circuit Board to bring the in-house community a resource which connects the components and illustrates their options, in a straightforward but visual way.
