If you want to know who are the winners and losers of this year’s major panel reviews then don’t miss this week’s feature, in which we reveal who is appointing whom.
In exhaustive detail we break down the vital stats on 34 of the year’s biggest reviews, covering all the major sectors from financial services to technology. The results highlight the impact of in-house lawyers increasingly taking tough measures to reduce spend and whittle down their panels to the firms best suited to help them deliver their strategies.
The research also breaks down the details of general counsel appointments, regions and practice areas and highlights how well – or not – individual firms have performed. Don’t miss the chance to compare how the magic circle has measured up on panels this year.
One thing is clear. It is the newcomers to general counsel positions that are shaking things up the most, changing not only the line-up but the way panels are structured.
Vive la révolution.
