When executives in the C-suite need knowledgeable, experienced people to help develop corporate-wide initiatives, they are increasingly turning to legal department operations managers. For those who have followed the Law Department Operations Survey since its launch in 2008, that’s powerful testimony to the value law department operations managers provide.
In the years since the inaugural survey, we have closely charted the expanding role and influence of LDO managers. This year’s survey once again provides an incisive look into the operations and trends of today’s legal departments, and the presence that legal can have throughout the business.
Earlier this year, LDO managers and experts in the field met in Washington, D.C., to review survey results and discuss how they are dealing with the opportunities and challenges in their own organizations (see the article that starts on the next page).
The 5th Annual Law Department Operations Survey has been developed once again with InsideCounsel (InsideCounsel.com/LDO) and the Blickstein Group, in consultation with our advisory board members, who represent some of the largest companies in the country. This unique survey focuses solely on the operations function and seeks to provide benchmarks that are useful to the largest law departments.
I think you’ll find the data and analysis not only revealing and informative, but actionable, too.
