Description

Law firm leaders are embracing new approaches to measuring profitability. Profit isn’t solely about maximizing production in one-year increments. It now means generating profitable engagements with repeat clients across a variety of matter types and practices. Doing this effectively means embracing different models of pricing and service delivery, which in turn requires a rethink about which contributions matter and which should be rewarded. In this interactive session, we'll connect these dots and provide practical, actionable advice for how to proceed.
