Staying Nimble in Economic Uncertainty: The Next Normal for Legal

Worldwide economic uncertainty is requiring general counsels to reimagine the future of their legal departments. The pandemic has forced every industry to rethink “business as usual,” and legal is no exception. However, even before the COVID-19 crisis, legal was proceeding with caution:

A 2019 survey delivered prescient findings: 76% of chief legal officers said they were expecting a recession within the next two years. In preparation, law departments have been careful — only 40% increased their total 2019 budgets, while 38% decreased overall spending. The legal work remains the same, but the challenges have increased – how are innovative legal departments tackling the challenge?
