13-14 April 2016: Essentials of pricing, LPM & matter management
The first 2016 legal management event we are presenting at, kicking off what promises to be a packed conference season. It is a breakfast briefing on Wednesday 13th April at The Gherkin, repeated again on 14th April at The Glass Boat in Bristol. Chris Bull is leading the session alongside Paul Longhurst and Melanie Farquharson of legal consultancy 3Kites and we have got our heads together around the challenge of how to deliver the essentials of pricing, Legal Project Management (LPM) and matter management to a group of law firm leaders in just one hour of presentation and discussion. Not an easy task, but I think we have managed to pool and distil our collective years of working in these areas into a series of takeaways. We’ve aimed to strip away much of the jargon and confusion and offer some immediately implementable ideas for law firm leaders. We will include:
- Simple models for breaking down legal matters
- Matter Dashboard template any firm could implement
- Summary of legal pricing options & how they are being used today
- 5 ways to use analytics and information to deliver improvements this year
- Proven techniques for bringing Partners and staff on-board with change
The Briefing is being hosted by Prosperoware, the USA’s leading provider of matter and pricing software to the legal industry, now developing their UK and international business. With the Prosperoware team – including former US and UK law firm CIO Ben Weinberger – on hand and with 3Kites input there will be no shortage of insight in the room about how technology can enable transformation in pricing and matter management. But our focus is first and foremost on how leaders can plan and implement real improvements in engagement delivery and profitability.
