New Infographic: Measuring the Trump Effect

Topics: Acritas, Corporate Legal, Government, Law Firms, Surveys


A new infographic, published by Acritas Research Ltd., showed that 72% of US organizations anticipate their business operations will be impacted as a result of Donald Trump being elected.

The telephone survey was conducted of 251 chief legal officers in the United States and the United Kingdom from July to December 2016.

The survey participants were pretty evenly split on the positive and negative impact a Trump presidency would have. Positive effects cited by respondents included reduced regulations and taxes, as well as a policy shift that would be generally more business- and industry-friendly. Negative impacts cited included greater instability and uncertainty, and possible new barriers to global trade.
