Initiating Alternative Fee Arrangements (FM)

Face it: clients are demanding changes in the way firms bill for work. Many are taking matters into their own hands: refusing to pay for associate or paralegal time; demanding discounts; and more. But it’s hard to get the details on how structure alternative fees – even how to clearly identify the firm’s own cost for doing the client’s work. Join this Webinar for practice tips and strategies about understanding your firm’s economics and translating that knowledge into better client service.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the practice areas most appropriate for setting alternative fees
  • Analyze the importance of timekeeping
  • Summarize the tools needed to successfully implement alternative fees
