NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Feb 13, 2012) - Practical Law Company (PLC), a provider of practical legal know-how to law firms, law departments and law schools, is pleased to support the Association of Corporate Counsel's (ACC) Legal Services Management Workshop February 28-29, 2012, in Dallas, TX. Like ACC, PLC is committed to providing in-house counsel with the practical tools necessary to increase effectiveness in their roles while reducing overall law department costs.

ACC's Legal Service Management Workshop series provides participants with the tools needed to implement successful value-based fee structures. The interactive program will guide participants through specific approaches to assessing matters, tasks and situations that lend themselves to particular fee structures.

"As the legal market continues to change, it is imperative that in-house counsel gain the hands-on experience necessary to get a tighter rein on costs," explained Renee Karibi-Whyte of PLC. "We support ACC with events such as this because they provide a very practical benefit; in this case, enabling in-house counsel and law firm attendees to work through new and alternative fee structures in a collaborative environment."

The workshop will also provide key strategies for sharing risks and rewards with outside counsel to ensure objectives are aligned and met. Participants will leave the event with a concrete understanding of how to develop a value-based framework for establishing non-hourly basis fee structures.

"We are grateful for PLC's sponsorship and our shared goal of helping in-house counsel strengthen their relationships with their outside firms through streamlining processes, increasing efficiency and saving money," noted Catherine Moynihan, ACC Director of Legal Management Services.
