Why should you attend this program?

Has your firm established its rates rationally, if not strategically, such that they can be supported by both the firm’s clients as well as its partners?

Pricing is not just a function of setting rates. It is in fact one of the most strategic endeavors that law firms must grapple with today--as lawyers become more accountable for pricing decisions, forcing them to consider service delivery from a profitability standpoint, regardless of fee structure. This is a new discipline with significant professional development implications as the conversation changes from hours and revenue, to revenue and profit.
Ark Group’s 2nd annual Law Firm Pricing & Profitability conference will provide a unique platform for discussion around the development and optimization of “pricing strategy”– shining a light on what a number of firms are doing to identify and re-engineer the most important drivers of law firm profitability by extending management visibility—painting a more comprehensive picture of what profitability entails and how lawyers actually work and spend their time.
Beyond the “state of pricing” in the profession and establishing a pricing capability itself within the firm, attendees of this forum will also discuss how and why these efforts lead us down a road of foundational restructuring (of practices and firms) – and why pricing is now encompassing greater levels of practice management, as firms strive to meet their client’s needs within a predetermined budget.
The rules have changed. Standard business principles have become a reality for law firms today as clients have become much more proficient in negotiating costs, evaluating performance and defining the scope of engagements.
> How can law firms best align partner behavior to avoid pricing mistakes--utilizing the price driver to the firm’s competitive advantage?
> Can law firms establish or at least reinforce the firm’s broader value proposition through pricing?
> How (and where) does pricing and overall firm strategy intersect?
We hope you will join us this March in New York as we collectively discuss and
illustrate the benefit and utility of developing internal standards and processes-reflective of, and based on, the firm’s broader business strategy.
