Legal operations functions have grown steadily in the past year, and legal departments are placing a greater importance on legal operations, according to the results of a survey published Thursday by the Corporate Legal Operations Consortium.

“It’s a very exciting time and we’re all driving a lot of change and innovation and are curious to see where it all lands,” Mary O’Carroll, CLOC’s president and director of legal operations at Google, said in an interview Friday.

The report shows that legal departments have an average of six full-time legal operations employees. Companies with revenues of $10 billion or more have an average 12 attorneys for every one legal operations professional. Midsize companies, with revenues of $1 billion to $9.9 billion, have 13 attorneys for every one legal operations professional, and small companies with less than $1 billion in revenue have six attorneys for every one legal operations professional.
