What drives Professional services firms prices? *

Abstract : In this paper, I propose a competitive equilibrium in which a matching occurs between high level quality PSFs and large clients. I demonstrate that this means that PSFs price variations only depends in 4 variables: the number of potential local clients, their average revenue, the number of competing PSFS and the number of PSFs employees. I finally show that across 26 OECD countries and over the last 10 years this model can explain more than 90% of PSFs price variations across country and time. 2010 JEL Classification.
