Why are women not progressing in law?

Acritas has been conducting new research into bullying and sexual harassment this summer on behalf of the IBA. And the results are shocking.

This latest research builds on our existing diversity research and fills in an extra piece of the puzzle as to why firms across the globe continue to lose senior female talent.


State of Corporate Law Departments in Singapore

Legal departments in Singapore are dealing with an ever-increasing workflow, helping their organizations deal with the strong growth occurring in many Asian markets, whilst at the same time facilitating more international activity. Further, the complexity of complying with dynamic international and domestic regulations is one of the greatest pressures these legal departments are facing today.

ALSP 2019 report: fast growth, expanding use and increasing opportunity

Use of alternative legal service providers (ALSPs) is growing faster than projected and is now more than a $10 billion market as ALSPs rapidly expand their footprint.

In this new comprehensive report from Thomson Reuters Legal Executive Institute, The Center on Ethics and the Legal Profession at Georgetown Law, Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford and Acritas, we explore key findings and the dramatic change that the legal industry has experienced and will continue to see.

How can you capitalize on this substantial growth?


Mainland Europe Brand Indexes 

The inaugural Acritas Mainland Europe Law Firm & Alternative Legal Brand Indexes have been published and reveal a diverse and growing competitive landscape, with global firms, strong independent local firms and the Big Four all making the ranks.


Acritas Stars – 2019 stand-out talent survey

In February we will be revealing the new Acritas Stars - independently nominated by senior in-house counsel.

This kicks off the start of our third annual survey with these stand-out lawyers to investigate their collaborative and innovative approaches to work in order to analyze what stellar performance looks like and help firms develop and implement strategies to improve performance.
