Acritas Stars Survey: 2020 Future Working Practices

In June 2020 we will be conducting our fourth mid-year annual global study of more than 13,000 Acritas Stars. The aim is to refresh and deepen our understanding of what makes these people such stand-out lawyers and explore the way lawyers work is changing, to uncover how firms need to evolve to be in a position to thrive and adapt in the future.

The survey has four main areas of exploration:

  • Pre COVID-19 working practices
  • Changing Working Practices during crisis
  • Ideal Working Practices
  • Wellbeing


A summary of the key findings will be shared with all respondents following thorough analysis of the results which we hope to complete in September, 2020.
