Innovation in Law

In a ground-breaking piece of research, legal market experts Acritas have been investigating how innovation in the legal industry is evolving, based on first-hand experiences of over 2,000 senior in-house counsel. 

Despite a huge industry that has evolved around promoting innovation in legal services, our latest research suggests much of it is falling on deaf ears, as this short video analysis reveals.


Acritas’ Sharplegal research study provides scientific evidence on innovation in law to support both global, country, industry and practice-level strategy development. 

Every year, Acritas interviews more than 2,000 senior in-house counsel from major companies around the world to create Sharplegal, the most comprehensive annual study of the global legal market. This research helps the fastest growing law firms plan effectively to meet clients changing needs. We shape all our research and advisory programs to meet our clients’ needs and provide renowned industry benchmarking.
