A Martindale-Hubbell Connected event from May 3 – 15 will support the publishing of a unique global benchmarking survey, which includes responses from the largest number of legal department participants in a survey of its kind. A summary of this unique research will be held exclusively in MH Connected.
The research has been produced by General Counsel Metrics, LLC, headed by experienced global legal benchmarking consultant and MH Connected member, Rees Morrison. More than 400 legal departments across the globe are expected to submit data by May 2010.
The survey includes key questions related to global legal department’s management practices of people and external counsel – enabling general counsel to easily benchmark their legal department’s activities and focus their management efforts more efficiently.
Using the results, law firms will better understand how their services fit into the overall picture of their corporate clients, helping them to tailor their overall service offering.
Also during this exclusive event:
The unique research will review the results of the Spend and Staff research, comparing and contrast results by region, OECD vs Emerging economies and other areas of focus.
Moderator Rees Morrison will be joined by in-House Counsel panelists Jonas Gibson (Legal Counsel, Q Med AB – Sweden) and Gaston Bilder (Legal Counsel) representing Europe and Latin America respectively.
