ETHICS IN BILLING & COLLECTIONS FEES, 1 CLE hour
 

This program will discuss ethical issues in billing and collecting lawyers’ fees. The program will cover keeping timesheets, providing clients descriptions of work, and common misconceptions about what’s properly billable – and what’s not. The program will cover practical issues like how to handle internal conferences, advancing litigation expenses and billing for them, managing third-party payment for a client’s representation and issues related to the attorney-client privilege.  Fee sharing and new, alternative billing arrangements, such as flat fee billing, will also be covered. This program will provide you with a real world guide to a range of significant ethics issues in billing and collecting fees.

Double billing, duplication of work, transient billers, and internal conferences
Fee sharing with other lawyers and new, alternative billing arrangements

Third-party financial responsibility for a representation – ethical and privilege issues
Advancing litigation expenses, extending loans, and billing for expenses
