CITATION UPON INDUCTION INTO THE COLLEGE
Currently a National Practice Manager at Seyfarth Shaw, Patrick Johansen was the first Certified Pricing Professional working at a U.S. law firm and is a recognized leader in the field of law firm pricing. Patrick launched and authors the first blog (Patrick on Pricing) and the first Twitter feed exclusively dedicated to law firm pricing articles, presentations, publications, news, events, and education. His “Roll Call” of legal pricing professionals has become a much-referenced source, and the site have been viewed by those as far flung as the Dominican Republic, Guernsey, Pakistan, and Nigeria — making it truly a global resource.
An award-winning writer and speaker, Patrick has been published by the ALA, ILTA, and LMA and has presented to ALA, ILTA, LMA, and LSSO. His history of local and national leadership roles in top-flight associations has contributed to the advancement of both law firm marketing and pricing.
Patrick embodies the College’s values of innovation, improvement, and service. We are immensely proud to welcome Patrick as a Fellow of the College of Law Practice Management.
