Something for the Legal IT Weekend: Aderant users win prizes!aderantuser
The award honours the firm for successfully harnessing systems and technology in ways that increase efficiency or positively impact the client experience. Aderant nominated Bird & Bird for this award based on their innovative and highly successful pricing and profitability initiative powered by Aderant MatterWorks.
According to industry research from Altman Weil, 92% of law firms use non-hourly billing structures, but only 16% have been able to make them more profitable than hourly fees. Predicting the recent cuts in corporate legal spending and the resulting squeeze on pricing, Bird & Bird began in 2010 a comprehensive program focused on successfully moving the firm away from a sole focus on revenue generation to a more sustainable model of taking into account the costs of service delivery. The MPF award recognises Bird & Bird for providing clients with flexible pricing proposals while ensuring their matters are ultimately delivered at a sustainable cost.
