The largest legal department benchmarking survey in the world will provide detailed insights across geography and industry into staffing, costs, operations, law firm usage, and diversity and inclusion
WASHINGTON and HANOVER, Md. (February 23, 2022) — The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC), a global legal association representing 45,000+ in-house counsel in more than 80 countries employed by over 10,000 organizations, and Major, Lindsey & Africa (MLA), the world's leading legal search firm, today announced the launch of the 2022 Law Department Management Benchmarking Survey.
The largest legal department benchmarking survey in the world is now open and welcomes representatives from corporate legal departments around the world to participate. Results will provide detailed insights across geography and industry into staffing, costs, operations, law firm usage, and diversity and inclusion. All corporate legal departments are eligible to participate. Responses will provide legal departments with their definitive key performance indicators (KPIs) for performance assessment. Departments answering over 80 percent of the survey will receive complimentary access to the final results. Please visit the survey website to participate before April 1, 2022.
"We are thrilled to partner with ACC again to provide impactful law department metrics," said Gregory Richter, partner and vice president, Retained Search and Advisory Services for MLA. "This year's survey includes ground-breaking diversity metrics, to tangibly advance one of the profession's most critical issues. Cost pressures, staff and organizational stresses, and mounting regulations can also be addressed using actionable peer data, in contrast to the usual attitude polls. And our unique Transform Advisory team takes these metrics to the next level for clients through its proven performance improvement consultancy."
"Corporate law departments of all sizes and experience levels will find useful insights in this survey to help improve their effectiveness and efficiency,” said Blake Garcia, Ph.D., senior director of business intelligence for ACC. “By being able to easily benchmark with similar law departments by size, industry, and location, leaders can easily assess significant inefficiencies and take quick action to adjust operations and strategy. This all begins with having as many legal departments complete the survey as possible. We are grateful to MLA for their continued partnership to field such an important survey."
