"Department Structures: A significant change in how legal departments are structured has taken place since 2006. Now, nearly three in four departments are centrally organized: Attorneys are housed in the corporate center rather than in far-flung business units. A full 73% of corporate law departments are now organized this way, up from 55% in 2006. In general, a centralized law department is viewed as carrying more prestige and as being closer to the center of power in a corporation. Again, this change may reflect a boost in the perceived importance of in-house counsel."
