Notably, the B2B legal services, powered by large law firms, stand tall, commanding a significant market share. However, the hybrid legal services are poised to outpace all other segments, experiencing a remarkable CAGR of 15.8% from 2022 to 2027, highlighting their burgeoning relevance in the industry.
