"Really useful, practical sessions on some of the hot topics around pricing in Legal, delivered intelligently and passionately by Richard and his team, well worth the time!" Adrian Avanzato, Head of Pricing, Pinsent Mason


"Many who attended will have been familiar with aspects of a retainer fee arrangement but what Richard articulated with great clarity was the full range of benefits from such arrangements with very practical advice on how to make a success of them....I think mixing the content to appeal to different roles in the firm with a pricing interest is a great idea." - Chris Billington, UK Finance Director & COO, Bird & Bird


"The breakfast briefing was really very good. You are clearly very aware that you have to give the punters something of substance in order to demonstrate your excellence. You did that in spades" - Simon Fenton, Partner, Irwin Mitchell


"I just wanted to say thank you very much for setting up and inviting me to attend the first Pricing Forum. I think the Pricing Forum is a tremendous idea and I'm very much looking forward to attending the upcoming sessions" - Richard Henwood, Strategy & Governance Executive, Withers

More Dangerous Drivel From The Legal Services Consumer Panel

Under normal circumstances, we would not bother wasting time addressing the asinine drivel that periodically issues forth from the Legal Services Consumer panel but the latest article in the Law Society Gazette (1 August 2018) simply cannot pass without comment.

Law Firm Pricing Scorecard 2018

Now in its 10th year with half of all US law firms with 50 or more lawyers participating, the Law Firms in Transition survey has become a valuable resource for insight on law firm strategy and the opinions of firm leaders.
