When Clio introduced the Legal Trends Report in 2016, it was the first ever data-driven look at key questions raised in modern law firms. The Legal Trends Report provides an annual account of the most important issues faced within the legal profession.
In 2018, Clio continues to expand the data available to lawyers. This year’s report asked both lawyers and clients how they expect to work with each other—and the answers could not be more different. By analyzing the aggregated and anonymized data of nearly 70,000 legal professionals in the US, in addition to extensive survey research, Clio is able to report on unique insights into law firm efficiencies, hourly rates, and other key metrics for success.
