To what extent do lawyers in legal departments know their department’s benchmark metrics? I wondered about this because more than 60 percent of the participants in the General Counsel Metrics (GCM) global benchmarking survey are general counsel (and, by the way, has your department joined the 600 others? Click on the left icon). The most probable reason is that general counsel are more likely to get e-invitations. Moreover, they belong to various general counsel groups and learn about them that way. General counsel also have the authority to decide to submit proprietary corporate data. Finally, a general counsel, far more than any other lawyer, has a reason to obtain benchmark metrics too, whether try to fortify the budget, justify new hiring, amplify management insights or exemplify the law department’s value to fellow executives.
