Executive Summary
Legal services comprises offices of lawyers, title abstract and settlement offices, offices of notaries. The various types of laws predominantly followed in most countries are criminal law and civil law. The legal professionals in the legal services industry include solicitors, barristers, and lawyers.
The global legal services market is expected to grow to more than $750 billion in 2019. Many domestic law firms are entering into new markets, collaborating with foreign counsels to offer wide range of services, thereby eliminating boundaries on the geographic scope of law practice. Globalization is gaining momentum due to rapid growth in internet, automation of legal processes and developments in data security. Also, in many parts of the world there was limited demand for more sophisticated services. Now many clients have globalized and thus require more sophisticated and internationally-oriented legal service providers with global reach.
The top ten competitors in the market made up approximately 4% of the total market share in 2015. Deloitte was the largest competitor with 1% of the market, followed by Latham & Watkins, Baker & McKenzie and DLA Piper USA. Pressure to control costs have forced law firms to move away from traditional by-the-hour billing models to alternative billing models. The new alternative billing models include fixed, flat blended and capped fees. Many law firms are switching to alternative billing models to build long term relationships with clients and to maximize value they are offering to clients. According to a survey by the US law department, about 70% of fees paid to outside counsel was not based on standard hourly rates or the billable hours.
