Pricing & Profitability
ALPMA is working in conjunction with BigHand to conduct a global industry survey around legal pricing and profitability trends. We’re asking legal finance staff from mid-large sized law firms to take part and find out how law firms plan to adapt pricing and keep work profitable during the current economic uncertainty.
Impact of COVID-19
The Associations Matter 2020 COVID-19 Member Impact Survey was conducted on behalf of the Australasian Legal Practice Management Association (ALPMA). The purpose of the survey was to help ALPMA better understand the impact of COVID-19 on the profession and individual legal firms.
Emerging Legal Professions Survey
In 2018 ALPMA, in collaboration with the Centre for Legal Innovation at The College of Law (CLI), undertook one of the most comprehensive surveys into the emerging professions within the legal industry across Australasia.
The drivers of change have been clearly identified as technology and AI; client demands, globalisation, diversity and inclusion, and the need for continuous improvement.
Client Experience Benchmarking
ALPMA is proud to partner with CXINLAW for its 2018 Client Experience Benchmark Research assessing the client experience priorities that result in an inspired service culture, outstanding client loyalty and profitable growth.
The results gleaned from this research are both interesting and, at times, alarming.
