Why should Legal Department Staffing Ratio be measured?

Legal Department Staffing Ratio measures the total number of company-wide employees divided by the number of Legal Department employees (across all the Legal function's sub-groups) working for the company at the same point in time, expressed as a ratio (e.g., total employees per Legal Department employee). A lower than average value may be related to process inefficiencies, lack of automation and/or simple overstaffing within the Legal Department. While a high value for this metric is preferred, this should also be balanced with the level of legal service the company has forecasted that it needs in order to efficiently oversee the company's litigation and compliance with internal and external regulations and laws, as the quality of legal services may impact the company's standing should an issue pop up.
