Why we invested

Alternative legal service providers provide corporates with more flexible and cost-effective ways of managing their legal needs than those offered by traditional law firms. The sector is growing rapidly, and its penetration of the $635 billion global legal services industry is forecast to grow from around 1% to 10% by 2025. As the pioneer in the market, LOD is uniquely positioned to capitalise on this growth, due to its unrivalled reputation for innovation, quality and client service, and its access to world class legal talent.
