Course Overview

Legal services pricing has rapidly become the biggest single factor on law firms' agendas in driving profitability, with most of the top 100 law firms having a dedicated pricing function.

Pricing is something which historically has not been associated with legal services. Addressing fees is outside most lawyers' comfort zone and is seen as a necessary evil. Indeed, getting the price wrong, usually results in uncomfortable conversations with clients and management.
