ALM Legal Intelligence Launches Government Contracts Database

New product provides full, searchable data on all federal contracts for outside legal services from 2008 to 2012

NEW YORK – March 11, 2013 – ALM Legal Intelligence, the leading source for business information and market data for and about the legal industry, has launched the Government Contracts Database, a detailed, fully searchable compilation of data on all federal contracts for outsourced legal services between 2008 and 2012.
The Government Contracts Database allows law firms and other service providers to surface new opportunities and fine-tune marketing efforts aimed at the U.S. Government. Among other benefits, the Database will allow users to:

  • Detail actual government purchases of legal products and services throughout the entire Obama Administration period.
  • Benchmark rates against those charged by peer firms.
  • Research past successful bids by contractor name, firm size, contracting office and state, and other variables.

“This database will be an invaluable resource for any firm that wants to do a better job connecting with the vast federal marketplace for legal services,” said Kevin Iredell, vice president of research and continuing education products at ALM. “ALM has pulled together every single contract for outsourced legal services, including contract modifications, made by the U.S. government between 2008 and 2012 and turned it into a fully searchable product. Now it’s easy to explore the nooks and crannies of federal legal services procurement, including fees charged by successful bidders. Reports can be tailored by geography, contractor names and other relevant variables.”
The Government Contracts Database is available as a standalone product or as part of a customer’s ALM Legal Intelligence Database annual subscription. For more information, please go to
