Over the next few months we will report information critical to your success as an in-house counsel. In this issue, we focus on the financial aspects of managing the legal department. Our annual budget survey provides you with benchmarking data you can use to defend your legal department spend.
In the coming months we will publish other surveys that can help you confront legal and management challenges. In the July issue, look for our annual Survey of General Counsel, which allows you to assess the quality of the relationships you have with your law firms. Following that we will reveal our revamped report on the 200 largest legal departments, and a brand new survey on legal department diversity. Our goal with each of these surveys is to provide you with solid benchmarking data against which to measure your department's performance in a number of key areas.
