The recent past has seen major international accounting firms gain further footing in the legal services industry through partnering with – or outright acquiring – “NewLaw” firms.
Deloitte has been particularly active in legal services: It recently announced a partnership with Kira Systems, a provider of machine learning artificial intelligence to legal service providers; it also acquired ATD Legal Services Professional Corp., a legal process outsourcer.
In March 2016, Deloitte acquired Conduit Law. Conduit began as a NewLaw firm that provided outsourced lawyers to support in-house legal teams; Conduit now practises in affiliation with Deloitte LLP.
