Thought leadership is not about repurposing others’ material but constantly producing our own. This enables us to test new concepts, challenge the status quo and constantly seek to improve upon processes and methods. That’s why publishing relevant, actionable content is vitally important to us. We produce an award-winning pricing blog and provide our subscribers with quality, curated content from around the globe. We are regularly commissioned to produce articles for the profession’s pre-eminent publications including Managing Partner, Global Lawyer, Commonwealth Law Journal, The Times (London) and the Pricing Journal.

“My focus at Managing Partner magazine is to deliver high-quality content which pushes management thinking and best practice forward in law firms. I have worked with Richard Burcher since 2013 to develop thought leadership content on pricing strategies and I look forward to continuing to do so.” - Manju Manglani, Editor, Managing Partner
