  • What do clients want? Analysing the General Counsel law firm relationshipWhat do clients want? Analysing the General Counsel law firm relationship
    The Corporate Counsel Exchange teamed up with Briefing Magazine to do some ground-breaking research into what clients want, what law firms think they value, and whether the two match up!

    This infographic provides you with an exclusive sneak preview of the results before the full report is released in September.

    125 in-house General Counsels took part in the survey, 67% from companies with more than £1.1 Billion in revenue a year and more than 1000 employees. Their answers were matched up with over 86 management leaders from the UK’s top 120 law firms. 

    One General Counsel commented on part of the results regarding AFAs and if General Counsel really understand them when asking for them:

    “Often the problem is that you ask for a fixed fee but then most of the law firms try to build in a couple of escape clauses.”
