Find out how the international in house counsel community manage their external and internal legal requirements in a changed economic environment.

This 30 page pdf report is based on the fourth annual survey the International In-house Counsel Journal conducted with in-house counsel during September and October 2011.  

Each year the IICJ undertakes a survey of in-house counsel selected from its data base of over 70,000 in-house counsel worldwide. The respondents typically represent in-house legal teams from companies operating in over 70 countries.

The report provides valuable insights into how in-house teams will deliver legal services to their business over the next 12 months. Key indicators reveal the level of work to be retained in-house against work to be outsourced or passed into the hands of legal firms. The report is highly regarded by in-house counsel and private practice lawyers with a keen interest in how legal services will be delivered in the coming year and beyond.

A panel of 40 in-house counsel drawn from a cross section of business sectors and jurisdiction played a key part in forming the format of the survey. The survey posed 49 questions ranging in topics such as the size and structure of the in-house teams, how they purchase external legal services, how they manage their in-house functions, which law firms they use for specific areas of legal work and how they see their function evolving in 2012.

The collective profile of companies who responded represent:  

  •  Combined annual revenues of over $9trn

  •  8555 in-house lawyers in over 70 countries worldwide

  •  Combined legal spend annually estimated at over $20 billion

  •  In-house legal teams ranging from 1-5 lawyers to up to 250+ lawyers

  •  An estimated use in the region of over 4000 law firms worldwide
