Those of you who know me know that the beginning of my career and the launching of this magazine are interrelated. Helping to launch what was then known as Corporate Legal Times was my first professional highlight, and building that first circulation list was my first ever bet-the-company project. And my work with the legal support providers that served the corporate market laid the groundwork for my “second act” as a consultant.
With all that history, it is especially gratifying to be collaborating with InsideCounsel (and our long-time partner, Huron Legal) on the Annual Law Department Operations Survey. Now in its seventh year, it is the only survey dedicated to benchmarking the operations of legal departments in areas including staffing, technology, e-discovery, cost management, metrics/reporting, and relationships with outside counsel.
