Explore platform
  • Connect & converse with your closest peers

    Discuss the most pressing issues of the moment. Get quick gut-checks on day-to-day questions, or strategic insights on big picture challenges. Ask the community at large, or target a specific sub-group or individual. The give-to-get culture means you’ll find plenty of peers eager to pay it forward.

  • Powerful research at your fingertips

    Easily search through discussion archives and our comprehensive resource library for answers and insights. Leverage the peer forms repository for tried-and-true precedent, or bank your CLE credits from our extensive on-demand database of past events. Don’t reinvent the wheel or overpay for outside resources or advice.

Compensation Surveys

Compensation data is highly-confidential and notoriously difficult to find. Our exclusive give-to-get annual comp surveys close that knowledge gap, with detailed analyses and dynamic breakdowns across the full range of relevant variables. 

Topical Surveys

We go deep with insights and analysis on the core day-to-day topics that our members are grappling with. This includes everything from cloud transaction contract terms to privacy trends to cybersecurity best practices, and much more.

Benchmarking Surveys

We periodically survey our members to provide helpful benchmarking data on evergreen operating topics as well as rapidly emerging new situations. From legal department sizing to market condition adjustments (layoffs, budget cuts), and everything in between.
