Acritas, the leading research firm behind the Law Firm Brand Index, created the Acritas Stars Database and Report based on the results of an 18-month long survey of nearly 4,000 general counsel and other senior leaders at legal departments around the world. Participants were asked to name any exemplary outside counsel with whom they had worked, and to describe the particular characteristics that qualified these individuals to be outstanding. These characteristics included legal expertise and the ability to translate it into practical solutions, responsiveness to requests and maintaining strong, long-lasting relationships with their clients.
