There is a new approach to buying legal services and the new way forward is the mission

of the Buying Legal® Council.

WHAT DOES PROCUREMENT WANT?
LET'S HAVE A DIALOGUE

As the trade organization for professionals tasked with buying legal services, we seek a dialogue with law firms, legal service providers, software companies and other stakeholders in the legal industry. Only when buyers and sellers of legal services communicate with each other and have a dialogue, can there be a "win-win." 

To ensure that you have a clear understanding of what legal procurement is all about, join our Buying Legal® Dialogue webinars. You will hear from a seasoned legal procurement professionals what they want. And there will be an "open mic" where you can ask them anything you ever wanted to know about legal procurement. 

Getting more and more RFPs from procurement? You are asked to participate in a reverse auction? Price negotiations coming up? What are procurement professionals looking for? Needing to market to legal procurement and legal operations?

If you are looking for answers, log into our Buying Legal® Dialogues!
