In light of recent upheavals a webinar seeks to provide practical steps for the legal sector  

17th May, 2017 Deutsche Bank’s decision to no longer pay for junior associate work has set a worrying precedent. It is clear that firms who do not willingly innovate or cut costs will be forced to by their clients.

Firms currently have insufficient tools to support this move to financial risk sharing. Poor pricing of services is leading either to excessive write offs or to increasingly unjustifiable legal costs. In light of these developments, legal technology company Clocktimizer is hosting a webinar on 23rd May. It comes as culmination of a two month long campaign aiming to make law firms futureproof.

Clocktimizer have assembled a panel of specialists from the US, UK and Europe and will be looking at the practical steps lawyers can take to drive change. They will be discussing how to align firm strategy with client demand and look at the key factors to take into account when building an AFA in order to maximise profit. Finally they will also be discussing the single habit firms should change in order to meet the challenges facing them in the coming years. Sign up for the free webinar here.
