WHAT’S NEW

Fixed-Fee Billing Panel at SF Bar Association (Friday 12/1)

Fixed-Fee Billing for Sophisticated Legal Services

Alternative fee arrangements are all the buzz, but very few firms have taken the plunge to drop the billable hour entirely in their engagements with demanding corporate clients. This presentation will cover both the practical and legal aspects of using fixed-fee subscription pricing for sophisticated transactional and litigation services. Bring your questions and objections and join us as we explore how to move from the billable hour to fixed-fee relationships with your clients.
