Stellar Performance Key Findings
In addition to capturing engagement levels and attractive employer brands, we have explored the topics of cross-border collaboration, diversity and sustainability - to name a few.
We have explored the topics of collaboration, sector specialism, innovation and effective leadership and their impact on building high performing teams.
Last year we identified six different types of Stars and how lawyers and their firms can enable the development of Star qualities and engage Stars.
We found compelling evidence of a strong correlation between these stand-out lawyers and the firm’s overall performance in areas such as profitability, reputation and client loyalty.
Acritas has a database of over 10,000 client-nominated, stand-out lawyers in private practice. The names have been volunteered to us by senior in-house counsel in large organizations, whom we interview on an ongoing basis about the legal market in our global Sharplegal study. This means that the database is entirely free from law firm influence.
