Law Department Operations Survey

The Annual Law Department Operations Survey was created in 2008 to give law departments a consistent platform to benchmark themselves and shed light on the emerging profession of law department management. The oldest and most comprehensive law department operations survey in the marketplace, the 34-page 2019 Survey Report includes more than 70 data points on the current state of legal department operations.

The yearly survey is created and published by the Blickstein Group, in cooperation with Morae Global. The advisory board, headed by David Cambria, chief services officer for Baker McKenzie (formerly ADM and Aon), consists of LDOs from Fortune 300 companies and consults on the survey.

The 12th annual Blickstein Group Law Department Operations Survey is published in collaboration with Morae Global. Other sponsors for 2019 are Icertis, ContractWorks, AdvoLogix, Legal Decoder, iManage, Onit, Alphaserve, Mitratech and Wolters Kluwer. Our media partner is Above the Law.

The 2019 Survey Report, “Continuing to Mature While Bracing for Uncertainty,” can be downloaded here.
