The 2023 ACC Chief Legal Officers Survey, conducted in partnership with Exterro, seeks to better understand the role of the CLO in the modern business environment. The survey covers four general topics: the role and reach of the CLO, the value of the legal department to the company, the political and regulatory landscape, and the outlook for the legal department in the coming year.
Almost 900 general counsel and chief legal officers from 35 countries representing 20 industry sectors participated in the survey. The results continue to bring focus to the immense value that Legal brings to the business, the growing influence of the CLO within the company's leadership, and the increase in CLO oversight of various corporate functions.
This report provides unparalleled insights directly from CLOs as they share the trends, challenges, and opportunities for the year ahead.
