Our Company

A Brief History

We founded Legalpeople in 2002 in Chicago, inspired by the idea that the best way to meet the rigorous and discriminating demands of the legal profession was as an independent firm focusing exclusively on the legal industry. We now have a national focus, with offices established in the Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, Midwest, and West Coast, but we maintain a boutique approach with every single client. This is why a recent third-party customer survey of our clients indicated satisfaction rating of 9.8 out of 10.


Today, our journey continues as we combine seasoned expertise, concierge-level service, and leading-edge technology to fully meet our clients’ needs, from document review to specialized attorneys to contract analysis. This is what keeps Fortune 500s, Am Law 200s, and other legal organizations coming back to us for all of their legal workforce solutions.
