The Council on Litigation Management’s comprehensive national
litigation management study has been released. Conducted over
a five-month period by Revere Advisory, the Study is believed
to be largest study of its type ever conducted with data collected
across 160 questions from 47 senior litigation executives.
Among the findings: Seventy-four percent of study participants
rated the quality of their litigation metrics as “Fair,” “Poor” or
“Very Poor” in terms of measuring the overall effectiveness of their
programs. This represents a significant opportunity for improvement for the industry and for litigation executives generally.

return of 175%.
