Where Legal Value and the Business of Law Meet. The Institute's invitation-only Annual Value Meeting has become the can't miss event for senior executives in legal pricing, project management, and operations community. Set against a tropical Miami backdrop and carefully designed to offer attendees a truly dynamic and intimate experience, the event includes a series of high-end networking activities. The meeting itself is filled with two days of advanced and highly immersive education in pricing theory, negotiation, change management, and various other related topics led by some of the industry’s foremost educators, including professors from Harvard and Cambridge Universities. The format is unlike most legal conferences in that it is largely centered around active participation -- all attendees will spend the entire meeting engaging in the exchange of thought leadership and forging long-lasting relationships with their peers. This is why only the top executives of our member organizations -- the Chiefs and Directors -- are invited to participate.
Virtual Value Summits
In 2020, the Institute launched its Virtual Value Summit Series to great fanfare. Our first two-day event was attended by over 300 legal professionals in the Spring, featuring over a dozen short-form talks from some of the industry's leading experts. Our next Summit in the Fall took attendees on a deep dive into alternative pricing. The Institute will continue the series into 2021.
The True Value Partnering Institute (TVPi) and BTI are pleased to announce the Inaugural and legal sector First-ever Law Firm Alternative Fee Arrangement (AFA) Awards for those law firms recognized by Clients as being the very Best at AFAs.
The Awards were be presented at the AFA Law Firm Awards Ceremony in September and winner trophies were sent to the Chairperson of each law firm who received this distinguished award.
TVPi launched the Regional Forums in 2019, holding events in New York, Washington, DC and Atlanta. The forums consist of small in-person gatherings held for TVPi members across the country, giving them additional opportunities to connect and share best practices with their peers.

Our second Forum was held in DC in May and focused on the Pricing role, including a sneak peek at early results of the Second Annual Pricing Professionals Compensation Survey before publication in June. This was followed by our inaugural Southeast Regional Forum in Atlanta. Note: Future forums will be held again be held in San Francisco, New York, Washington, DC, Nashville, Chicago, and Toronto.
