We are market leaders in alternative legal services. We are committed to knowing our clients, understanding their business needs and collaborating to find the right solutions.

We don't outsource our alternative legal services. Instead we have an in-house team of more than 70 specialists across a variety of disciplines that work together with our legal teams, and directly with our clients, to design and deliver the most effective and efficient tailored solutions.

We've been investing in legal technologies and alternative service offerings for several years, bringing these together under the banner of a+.

Our a+ alternative services offering has three main categories: Allens Arrow, LawLab, and Legal Project Management.
