Global growth drives modernization in legal departments

As enterprises expand globally, corporate legal departments are being forced to evolve.

As teams are tasked with more responsibilities, corporate compliance becomes more complex and intensive – and 47% agree this is where most future resources are needed.

To keep pace, 84% of legal departments have made efforts to evolve in recent years. Transformative mechanisms include technology investments (50%), although 64% cite implementing technology as their biggest pain point. Outsourcing work to managed service providers is also a priority (21%) as departments look to measurably improve efficiency and reduce costs.
