600 law departments in the GCM benchmark survey, and many more coming before Release 4.0 in December!

The pace of participation has picked up and there is a decent chance that this year’s final report will embrace 1,000 departments. As of today, there were 600. They reported more than 26,000 lawyers, $13.5 billion of legal spend, and $43 trillion of revenue. In addition to 22 basic industries, by the way, the December report will include at least four segments of industries: automotive suppliers, national laboratories, manufacturers who belong to MAPI, and semiconductor companies. More industry segments will appear if there are at least six companies and they will get quartiles and means as greater detail in the report.

This year the report tilts a bit more than last year to English-speaking countries, but still with 155 from Europe. The data on matter management system vendors has enriched steadily and will form the basis of an innovative analytic report late this year to be sent to all participants.
