Today’s Chief Litigation Officers are among the busiest and most critical of all corporate employees. Given their role in managing a wide variety and ever-increasing volume of complex litigation, as well as involvement in big-picture legal strategy, these senior corporate executives have more on their plates than ever before. Fortunately, there is an increasing number of valuable services available to support these executives. And with the proper resources, Chief Litigation Officers can effectively protect their organizations from legal risk and control costs, while also playing a key role in the strategic direction of the business.
Consero’s 2014 Litigation Report, developed in partnership with Serengeti, a Thomson Reuters business, was produced in connection with an invitation-only event hosted by Consero Group in October 2014 for Chief Litigation Officers from Fortune 1000 companies. While the report was limited to 55 participants, the answers provide valuable insights into the challenges, concerns, and opportunities of senior legal executives.
