Over the past years, competition in the world legal services market has greatly changed due to a number of factors, but in the aftermath of the economic downturn, the pace of change has speeded up. Clients tend to become more focused on enhancing the value of the legal services they receive from law firms. Against this background, firms have to reshape themselves in order to be more responsive to their clients’ needs, to deliver services in a more predictable and efficient manner, as well as to develop pricing models that reflect the value of the services being offered more accurately.
