From the viewpoint of many executives, the law department primarily strives to minimize the company’s legal risks. In-house lawyers negotiate, draft and counsel to keep the ship off the law’s shoals. That contribution obviously makes sense, but what a shame that no one has figured out how to put reliable numbers to the risks avoided. The metrics of law department managers don’t extend to quantification of legal risks that never happened because of astute lawyering.
