The questions we ask are developed in collaboration with our Advisory Board of leading general counsel.  The answers captured within Sharplegal:

  • Ensure law firms deliver a better client service
  • Helping leadership to understand clients’ current and future needs enabling them to tailor their services accordingly
  • Are valuable to in-house counsel operational success
  • Allowing benchmarking across regions, industries and company size
