No Change in Law Firms Making Changes to Deliver More Value

Streamlining and making corporate counsel’s lives easier translates into better value.

Corporate counsel report the same number of law firms making changes in service delivery to increase value as last year, with 138 firms earning recognition in both 2015 and 2016, based on more than 600 interviews with corporate counsel. This may suggest legal project management has plateaued.

The lack of an increase in law firms delivering this attribute means the law firms making these changes have found a source of potent advantage.
