Invest, Strategize, and Maximize: 
The 2015 Mantra for Corporate Counsel

Last year may not have marked a paradigm shift in how corporate legal departments are managed, but it certainly cemented a message first sent in 2009: GCs and CLOs are more aware of and being more judicious with their dollars. 6 key findings from BTI’s 15th Annual Survey of General Counsel and Legal Decision Makers point to a realignment and reinvestment in the internal legal department, including:

  • Corporate legal departments bringing more than $1 billion in-house
  • Litigation still dominating legal budgets, but better cost control and new needs change the game
  • Spending surges on proactive tactics to keep risk—and exposure—down
  • Legal department headcounts soaring
  • The exceptional law firms serving GCs best
