There will be no CLE credit for this briefing.

As growth in demand for legal services has stagnated since 2008, law firm leaders have placed a greater focus on financial performance at both a firm and individual level. As key metrics and profitability come under more scrutiny, it is important that lawyers understand the basic financial language law firm leaders use so you can participate in the discussion. This One-Hour Briefing will help you develop a basic knowledge of the key financial drivers in a law firm that drive strategic decision-making. Whether you are an associate wanting to understand the business, a marketing team member who is responsible for budgets, or just someone wanting to understand what drives your firm's profits, this presentation will provide you with the tools you need.
