Enterprise Risk Management Services Evolve From Compliance to Resilience

ALM Intelligence Pacesetter Research finds law firms entering the risk services market

“The business case for enterprise risk management has never been stronger,” says Liz DeVito, Associate Director and ALM Intelligence Pacesetter Research Analyst. “The events of 2020 have dramatically expanded the risk profile for every organization worldwide, and the uptake of ERM is accelerating at pace. Providers are responding with new frameworks and technologies to deliver tangible outcomes and strengthen resilience.”

Research Highlights

  • Providers designated as an ALM Intelligence Pacesetter treat enterprise risk as a transformation lever and have developed sophisticated frameworks to embed ERM into clients’ business models, operations, and culture
  • Law firms are a growing presence in the enterprise risk services market as they respond to the call for General Counsels to provide strategic risk advice to C-suite and board executives
  • All providers are focused on helping clients build risk resilient organizations using a variety of tools and technologies, including artificial intelligence, data analytics, behavioral economics, and design thinking
  • The pandemic is driving strong demand for risk intelligence services which enable proactive and predictive approaches to managing enterprise risk

ALM Intelligence evaluates providers’ abilities to bring the full advantage of their extended organization, innovation capability, service delivery model, and brand eminence to create impact and value for clients. Pacesetter Research evaluated the enterprise risk management capabilities of 14 professional services providers for this research, including Accenture, Aon, Deloitte, EY, Gallagher, Guidehouse, IBM, KPMG, Linklaters, Marsh, Minter Ellison, Protiviti, PwC, and Ropes & Gray. Within this cohort, five ALM Pacesetters in Enterprise Risk Management were identified: Deloitte, EY, Marsh, Minter Ellison, and PwC.
