The second breakout session that I attended on Thursday morning at the P3 conference was “A Case Study on Profitability through Pricing and Client Value,” presented by Redwood.
The program told us:
For years the legal profession’s main focus with respect to ‘profit’ has been on driving productivity and revenue. Well before the boom in alternative fees this perception had changed drastically. Now in a new world with heavier client demands, budgeting needs, alternative pricing, and changing structures the true drivers of profitability have come under additional scrutiny.”

A post came through my reader last night, with 7 Tips for Starting a Content Marketing Strategy. Now, I know what you’re thinking, that the idea of crafting a “strategy” around delivering valuable information to your audiences is a bit icky. But I promise that it’s not – this is about identifying what is of most use to your clients and potential clients (and influencers and amplifiers), and making sure that you’re not committing what we call RAM (Random Acts of Marketing).

Weather seemed to factor into almost everyone’s travel into Chicago last week for the P3 conference, and unfortunately, it resulted in the cancellation of our keynote speaker for the morning. Instead, we were treated to an open and interactive discussion – as one of the speakers joked “We wouldn’t be business leaders if we didn’t know how to adapt.”

Jaimie will be back with new rainmaking recommendations in July!

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the LMA’s P3 conference, which brings together “pricing, project management and practice innovation experts to discuss the use of various tactics to explore solutions to real issues face by law firms today.”
I’ll be publishing some recaps for the conference in the coming days, since there was a LOT of high-level meaty topics and conversation happening in and around the event. But today, I wanted to bring you my two takeaways from the conference. As always, there are more than just two to discuss, but we’re focusing on these today! Feel free to add any other takeaways in the comments below, or just add your comments to the discussion!
