    I'm curious about other firm's business intake/conflicts department size. We have approximately 275-300 attorneys and three attorneys in the business intake/conflicts department who review and resolve conflicts. Is this standard?

    I have also been trying to obtain some benchmarking.  We have 410 attorneys.  4 Specialists and 3 conflicts attorneys.  Our conflicts clearance is centralized.

    When we were benchmarking, before this group was created, I attempted to mine the ILTA directory for info.  I can make no statements as to the accuracy of these numbers, but happy to share.  I made the Google Sheet editable for anyone with this link, so we can update/add our own numbers.

    This is fantastic! Thank you. I am in the midst of getting approval to hire another person so having a frame of reference is great.
