Aric Press will once again moderate our panel. This year, the focus will be on “value,” specifically what clients perceive to be of value from their law firms. Aric had pondered this topic in a recent article, in which he quoted an in-house lawyer as saying, “I do believe [our relationship with firms] is going to have to be more value-driven than rate-driven.” This prompted Aric to ask, “Do we have agreement on what value-driven means?” The article did not provide the answer. So, with his help, our three panelists will attempt to do so. Each of them is a key decision maker with regard to the selection, retention and termination of outside counsel.
