RFPs from Law Departments Hit 15-Year High

In-house law departments are not happy with the service they are receiving – and RFPs to aspiring outside counsel are now at an all-time high as a result:

“More clients are using more RFPs to hire law firms than any point in the last 15 years. 56% of corporate counsel issued RFPs for law firms in 2015, up from 45% in 2014.
