Responding to a Request for Proposal (CE Credit)

Product not yet rated

A combination of increased competition, rising costs and growing scrutiny by management, auditors and investors, has made the RFP process the gatekeeper for new law firm business. In 2016, the average law firm, according to Lexis-Nexis, reported receiving 200 requests for proposals (RFPs) each month! Managing that workload has become a substantial exercise for firms large and small. That tide of inquiries brings issues of ethics, regulation, economics and strategy that should implicate legal management professionals. This course will examine the key elements of an RFP strategy.
