The role of the PSL was established over ten years ago and has evolved significantly since then to play an integral role in a law firm's daily operations. As demands placed on PSLs have grown, it has become essential for PSLs to understand the firm as a business and how knowledge management contributes to the business - helping to win work, maintaining quality and managing risk and improving (or at least protecting) profit margins through process improvement - streamlining working practices, improving matter management and supporting fee earners as they price and budget for transactions.

This masterclass explores how this can best be done, through case studies, practical examples and discussion. You will leave with a better understanding of the operation of a law firm as a business and its key profitability drivers, and how you can contribute to its success.

Led by Harriet Creamer, Director, Outer Circle and Lucy Dillon, Director of Knowledge Management, Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP, this masterclass provides a real opportunity to exchange ideas and consolidate your thinking on these important topics.
