General Counsel Metrics Survey

General Counsel Metrics Survey
General Counsel Metrics Survey

June 16, 2011 Dahna Ori Contract Management  

Rees Morrison, noted law department management advisor and blogger has launched the largest benchmark survey ever done for law departments. We encourage you to join the more than 300 law departments who have already completed the General Counsel Metrics survey. All participants will receive a complimentary report of the results in July.

Click here and answer the six data questions on your staff and spend – all responses are confidential.

The survey asks for six pieces of your law department’s data:

  • number of lawyers, paralegals, and other staff broken out (as of Dec. 31, 2010)
  • internal and external legal spend last year
  • your company’s revenue last year

Responses to this year’s survey are ahead of last year’s pace, which had 805 participants. The final report displayed aggregate benchmark metrics from law departments in 48 countries who employed collectively nearly 22,000 lawyers. Its 25 benchmark metrics were broken down by 20 industries. If you have questions, contact Rees at

Rees, along with Karen Cariello of InsideCounsel, will be joining us for a webinar on Tuesday, June 28 at 11:00 am (EDT) about “How to Minimize Sales Contract Risk.” Rees and Karen will be sharing data from their recent surveys. To register for the complimentary webinar, click here.
