With workloads increasing, is your legal department keeping up?
In 2018, Altman Weil’s performed a survey of Chief Legal Officers around the country to determine what percentage of budget they used for in-house counsel versus outside counsel. The idea was to see if legal department workload was on the rise or the decline and the results, which you can review here, show that outside counsel is still a vital element in any successful business venture – especially when costs can be reduced through a strategic partnership with a reputable, capable law firm. In Chicago, that firm is Nery & Richardson, LLC.
