Acritas Stars Survey: 2020 Stand-out Talent

In February 2020 we will be conducting our fourth 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.

The survey has seven main areas of exploration:

   Evaluating compensation systems

   What support do firms provide that develops stand-out talent

   International collaboration

   Drivers of satisfaction and with current firm

   Perceived and desired opportunities for progression

   How aligned do stand-out lawyers feel towards the firm’s vision

   Aspirational employer brands


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