    Legal Services market report transcript

    Legal Services Global Industry Outlook

    • In 2022, the global legal industry is expected to reach approx. $785 billion, and it is expected to rise at approx. 4-6 percent to reach $815 billion in 2023

    • Growth Drivers for the global legal market are practice areas like M&A, Litigation, Patents Law, Patent Litigation, Insurance, etc.

    • Constraints for the market growth have been in-house adoption of Legal technology to optimize outside counsel spend, and hence a check on average billing rates, and also insourcing simpler legal subtasks.

    Legal Services Global Market Maturity 

    • The maturity of legal suppliers in North America and Europe is high, as they command the highest market share. More than 60 percent of the legal spend is concentrated in the developed legal markets of North America and Europe. The APAC region has the highest potential for growth, with many global legal suppliers entering the fray.

    Legal Services Global Drivers and Constraints

    Increasing demand for practice areas, like Litigation, patent litigation, corporate work, real estate and tax work, is driving the demand for legal services. There is a mounting pressure to adopt AFAs and usher in transparency to billing models. 


    Law firms (outside counsel)

    • Increasing demand for practice areas, like litigation, patents law, contract law, brand protection and employment law, has been driving the global legal market over the past few months.

    • Increasing demand from the mature markets, like the US (has experienced a slight dip in the past month, but has a stable overall demand levels) and UK, has been driving demand


    • Cost reduction and the need for better utilization of internal legal staff for strategic services have led to more work being outsourced to LPO units in low-cost destinations.

    • Favorable government policies, measures taken to liberalize and deregulate policies, reduced licensing requirements and the prospective removal of restrictions on Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) are driving the need for work to be outsourced to low-cost offshore destinations.


    Law firms (outside counsel)

    • The pandemic situation, though has affected the usual pace with which the market revenues grew, has propelled law firms to adopt technology to overcome constraints. However, corporate legal departments adopting tech with equal gusto, has put a check on the law firms increasing their billing rates too much. 

    • Mounting pressure to adopt alternative fees to bring transparency to billing models is acting as a constraint in the legal service industry, in terms of market revenues.

    • More number of lawyers are moving from private practice to in-house positions, thus reducing the information asymmetry and resulting in the domination of ‘price pressure’

    • Insourcing parts of litigation work, along with less critical work in other practice areas, like IP, employment, etc., are dampening the revenues of the law firm market


    • Lack of consistent service quality and data security issues have acted as constraints when work is being outsourced to LPO offshore locations.
