Introduction

 

The emphasis of this roundtable discussion is to understand the factors that will enhance the business value of professional legal practices. In most instances, professional legal practices are service businesses in which the success is dependent on relationships with clients and the reputation of the professionals in the community. The value of such practices is related to the future economic benefits that can be derived from the business. To accurately reflect this, it is important for the management (owners) to identify and understand the value drivers of the business. These drivers essentially increase the cash flows and reduce the risks associated with the business, thereby enhancing its overall value. In valuing such practices, the fundamental approach, concepts and principles of business valuation applies. The valuation process comprises of both qualitative and quantitative aspects. The former involves an assessment of the nature of the business and the competitive landscape in the industry. With appropriate financial information, the latter then deals with the application of appropriate valuation methods to determine the value of the business.

 

The discussion in this roundtable will explore the following issues:

 

• What are the factors that affect value?

• How do you create value?

• What are you valuing?

• How do you value?

 

This programme is strictly for law firm partners or for those holding management roles in their firms.
