How CEB Helps You

Our Latest Research

As companies become more complex and the need for agile decision making increases, the center of legal risk creation shifts. With 75% of middle managers making legally significant decisions and 60% of them making these decisions without understanding the legal implications, most legal departments are not equipped to manage all of the risks stemming from this broadening class of internal clients. To ensure the business receives necessary guidance, GCs must create a culture of legal risk management that builds their company’s Legal IQ.
