For 20 years, the annual Law Department Survey conducted by HBR Consulting, now part of Harbor, has been the premier source of benchmarking data used by general counsel and legal operations leaders of major corporations.
From outlook on internal staffing and spending on outside counsel, to use of technology to address demand for legal services, the 2023 edition identifies market trends and top priorities for law departments at leading corporations.
For corporate law departments, these insights add to your understanding of where the market is headed and help direct your business planning. Benchmarks are available by industry, revenue, law department size, and geography.
For law firm leaders, the survey findings provide an understanding on macro client spending and staffing patterns and emerging legal operations trends, so your firm is aligned with current and potential client demands; equipped for proactive client engagement; and informed into growth strategies for specific practice areas.
