The way legal departments work is continuously changing: on the one hand due to technological innovations, on the other hand due to laws, ordinances and regulations from both national and supranational bodies. In addition, legal departments in Switzerland are characterized by a lack of transparency when it comes to costs and their key performance indicators, whereas the expectation regarding the speed and quality of their service level, as well as the budget pressure, is constantly rising.
KPMG Law launched the Swiss Legal Benchmarking Report in 2021, a swiss whitepaper resulting out of the Global Legal Department Benchmarking Survey, in order to create clarity and deduct best practices for General Counsels and Heads of Legal. Insights on the strategy, organization, trends and developments but also cost- and performance KPIs and the automation of Legal are gathered from Legal Departments of Swiss firms operating in a variety of industries. This report will allow General Counsels and Heads of Legal to compare where they are currently standing in relation to their peers, as well as support them in defining strategies to further improve the performance and service delivery.
