Zooming out of our ALSP deep dive a little bit, Jamie Fraser (CEO & Founder, NineNineSix Solutions),  and Dana Denis-Smith (Founder, Obelisk) look into legal department strategy.

They discuss challenges of defining long-term strategy versus fighting fires, the new generation of strategy-focused General Counsel, and how successful legal departments mirror organisational strategy.

Similarly, Dana highlights the focus on collaboration and consultative outlook of ALSPs in supporting legal department strategy. As well as, how the ‘pick and mix’ style marketplace allows in-house teams to build solutions that work for their strategic goals.

This series is in collaboration with LexisNexis and Obelisk Support.

Over the past year, we’ve been working to bring clarity to this area of the legal market. (A)LSP Circuit Board maps the UK’s alternative legal service marketplace – in one place, organised by relevant categories – to help connect in-house teams with creative legal solutions.
