With the global client demand for values-based or alternate fee arrangements, law firms are having to reconsider their pricing strategies. In moving to any form of fixed price solution, the calculation of costs for the legal matter becomes critical, combined with the required systems and processes to deliver the legal service whilst managing client expectations and costs, and retaining a profit.
Lawyers leading a legal matter are effectively legal project managers, however a shift to new financial models calls for a more robust approach to estimating costs and managing the delivery process. Legal Project Management (LPM) is the application of project principles to law practice, and incorporates technology enablement, and process improvement to assist a legal practice in moving to a more competitive model.
In this session, adjunct Associate Professor Todd Hutchison will be sharing insights into:
•Alternate fee arrangements
•The key processes to Legal Project Management
•The key tools to manage risks, issues and changes
•The process to enable fee increases on fixed priced services and
•The staged process to shift to new pricing models.
