Lisa Hart Shepherd
Chief Executive Officer, Acritas
Lisa established Acritas ten years ago to exclusively service the research needs of professional and financial services firms. During this time, Lisa has worked on projects with many of the world’s largest law firms, devising research programs to help clients achieve service excellence, brand strength, employee engagement and global growth.
Lisa works closely with leading law firms to develop customized programs that meet strategic goals, primarily in the fields of mergers and acquisitions intelligence, client feedback and thought leadership.
Through analyzing the responses given by thousands of top-ranking legal buyers, Lisa has a deep understanding of client and market issues.
Lisa developed Acritas’ flagship product, Sharplegal, seven years ago. It is now the world’s most comprehensive annual study of the legal market. It delivers over $8 million of data and covers many aspects of the legal business in great depth, including brand, changing buyer behavior, client service, pricing and international needs.
Lisa and her team at Acritas work with over 40 of the Global 100 law firms on market intelligence programs.
