More than a hundred members of Connected registered for the hour-long webinar on May 6th. Three panelists, including this blogger, explained the benchmark study of General Counsel Metrics, which had 362 participants in the preliminary data presented.
The first part of the session explained the study and the benefits from benchmark metrics. The bulk of the session, however, concentrated on 16 benchmarks arrayed under the four key characteristics of departments: industry, country, company revenue, and number of lawyers. During that part the panelists spoke about the figures, regional differences, definitional issues, and how to interpret the benchmark metrics.
The webinar closed with some perceptive thoughts on benchmarks in the future for legal departments.
