Legal Metrics Portal Helps In-House Legal Teams Advance Their Use of Data and Analytics

April 26, 2022 – SAN FRANCISCO – A group of in-house legal operations experts and consultants from across the globe announced the launch of an online resource designed to help in‑house legal teams advance the use of metrics in managing their operations. This Legal Metrics Portal is free for use by the legal community globally and represents over a year of collaborative analysis and development by experts from NetApp,, Elevate, and Is Inspired.

The Legal Metrics Portal provides in-house legal teams with tools and information to help with metric selection, data collection, data-driven decision making, and data storytelling. The portal aims to create a community of like-minded professionals interested in collaborating, sharing, and advancing the collective need for legal metrics and benchmarking.

Key features include:

  • A library covering topics such as how to build and improve a legal metrics program
  • A catalog of more than 500 legal metrics with detailed descriptions, organized in categories that span legal operations and several legal practice areas
  • A self-guided wizard that provides metrics recommendations based on what users seek to achieve, such as data-driven decisions to be made or narratives to be told.

“We believe that by creating a comprehensive repository of in‑house legal metrics knowledge and making it openly available to the community, we can fuel positive change in the legal ecosystem,” says Jeff Franke, CEO of

“It’s become critical for the legal world to connect fully with the business world,” says Pratik Patel, Head of Innovation at Elevate, “so we focused this resource on metrics that can be used to manage the in‑house legal department and to communicate with the business it serves.”

“For those of us who have spent years building metrics programs and defining best practices, this is a valuable opportunity to collaborate and share what we’ve learned to help move the entire community forward,” says Connie Brenton, VP of Law, Technology and Operations at NetApp.
