Legally Yours, together with Clarence Workplaces for Solicitors, hosted a CPD event in Sydney – “Fixed-Fee – Not as Hard as You Think”.
“Fixed-fee” – it’s been a buzz word in the legal industry for some time, but what does it really mean? What are the benefits of offering fixed-fee legal services and what does it mean in practical terms for the legal industry?
