INFO PLEASE - Winston & Strawn is spearheading a project that brings together lawyers and legal professionals from across the industry to develop new metrics for clients to use in measuring things like outside counsel budget accuracy, billing time, diversity, pro bono engagement, and how long it takes to complete matters.
