The A&O Legal Innovation Benchmarking Report

A global study into how in-house legal functions are tackling change and transformation

How are in-house legal functions addressing the opportunities and challenges presented by legal innovation? How are they implementing innovation-based change to improve the way they deliver legal services, and what are the choices facing them as they look to harness the transformative powers of technology and data? 

In this report, we analyse the responses of more than 90 in-house leaders who took part in our in-depth survey on legal innovation. The results provide a rich and practical insight into how General Counsel, chief legal operating officers, and heads of legal innovation are tackling change and transformation. 

The report comprises five papers. Each examines a specific area of legal innovation: drivers and barriers to change; innovation strategy and goal setting; team structure and capabilities; supplier relationship management; and the use of technology and data.

You can download the executive summary here. Alternatively, you can download the full report here.
