Sixth Annual IICJ Global In-house Counsel Survey Report 2014
This 29 page pdf report is based on a survey undertaken by the International In-house Counsel Journal during Sept & Oct 2013 This annual report is the result of several months of research undertaken by the IICJ. As it is the 6th year the report has been produced it has become the industry standard for law firms seeking intelligence on their existing and potential in-house clients as well as providing clear information for counsels wishing to benchmark and educate their teams. It is also a key conduit for disseminating information across relevant sections of the company in order to further the in-house agenda and aid decision making.
The report summarises research carried out between October and December 2013 and is presented in a concise manner which can be easily shared between teams and strategists. In a period of great flux for global counsel it is important to have up to date information on how budgets are managed, the perennial problem of in sourcing v outsourcing and what the key drivers are for global counsel in a greatly changed economic and technological environment.
The questionnaire was distributed to over 100,000 in-house counsels operating in over 71 countries across five continents. The questions were compiled by an expert panel of 40 senior in-house counsels across a range of industry sectors and the questions were tested with the universe for relevance before the final questionnaire was designed.
The report is regarded as invaluable 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.
The collective profile of companies who responded represent:
- Combined annual revenues of over $10trn
- Over 9000 in-house lawyers in over 71 countries worldwide
- Combined legal spend annually estimated at over $20 billion
