Legal & Professional

Managing change in the legal and professional services sector


The legal and professional services landscape has changed considerably in recent years. Although market size has increased, there is more competition due to economic pressures, technological advances, client expectations, and an appetite for mergers and joint ventures. New entrants resulting from alternative business structures and regulation (such as audit firm rotation) are also creating a disruptive and complex competitive landscape. 

This has resulted in a squeeze on fees for many legal and professional services organisations, and an increased focus on delivering against the specific needs of more demanding clients. As a result, today’s firms need to think globally, provide seamless services across borders and sectors, and embrace technology to improve efficiencies, reduce costs and create impactful client engagement.

How RRD is helping the legal and professional services sector

Working closely with our clients we develop flexible and scalable outsourced solutions specifically designed to meet the current and future needs of their firm. Our solutions not only reduce costs and improve service output, but also deliver real value to business-critical processes.

Today, we have more than 1,500 people working with clients in the legal and professional services sector to help them win and deliver new business through competitive advantage.

We are as strongly placed to provide document production and knowledge management services to a ‘magic circle’ law firm as we are to deliver end-to-end outbound communications services to a ‘big four’ professional services firm.

Our consultative approach sees us work closely with key business stakeholders to understand corporate goals, existing processes and develop bespoke future proof solutions. By combining our skills, technology and knowledge of the sector, we ensure each solution is delivered by the right people in the right locations and in the most effective way.
