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.

The application and understanding of value pricing principles, will dramatically change profitability and cash flow if you are charging fees, and revolutionise your approach to the way you are charged fees by external law firms.

This training course is part of our collection of Legal Function Training Courses for the in-house lawyer.
