"Many who attended will have been familiar with aspects of a retainer fee arrangement but what Richard articulated with great clarity was the full range of benefits from such arrangements with very practical advice on how to make a success of them....I think mixing the content to appeal to different roles in the firm with a pricing interest is a great idea." - Chris Billington, UK Finance Director & COO, Bird & Bird


"The breakfast briefing was really very good. You are clearly very aware that you have to give the punters something of substance in order to demonstrate your excellence. You did that in spades" - Simon Fenton, Partner, Irwin Mitchell
