Corporate Legal Insight – Trendforschung anders


“CLI – Corporate Legal Insights” enables in-depth insight into current legal challenges, trends and successful measures and strategies. These systematically developed solutions are placed in a corporate context and discussed with top decision-makers from business, politics, trade unions and associations. Results are adapted to reflect individual industry or company-specific situations because at the end of the day, readers of any study want to know: “What do the results of this study actually mean for our company?”



CLI studies focus on a specific legal topic and combine empirical study results derived from the practical experience of legal departments with the expertise of renowned specialized experts from leading law firms, alternative law providers, legal departments, and applied science. This unique combination of figures, best practices, specialized expertise, and case studies directly based on the practice of business and economic law provides decision-makers in legal departments with new approaches and perspectives.



Empirical data collected during personal interviews with general counsel, heads of legal departments, and corporate legal departments from companies located in Germany and throughout Europe that vary in size and operate in diverse industries. The survey covers questions concerning challenges, trends, strategies, and measures based on in-house legal practical experience.



Expert knowledge on legal classification, analysis, and evaluation of current legal topics based on case studies from the practical experience of legal departments as well as derivation and evaluation of effective measures and methods.
