Billing 101: Best Practices for Running a Modern and Ethical Firm
Tuesday, November 7, 2023| 1 PM CT • 11 AM PT • 2 PM ET
Billing is one of the most critical aspects of running a law office, but it’s something that many lawyers ignore until it’s too late. Invoices get delayed by months; clients disappear into the wind instead of paying what they owe. Some things will always be out of your control, but you can absolutely minimize your risk of nonpayment— and reduce administrative stress — by automating your billing and properly managing your trust accounts.
Billing should no longer be the laborious task that it was of yesteryear. Technology now exists to make life easier, with more of an eye on compliance with your state bar. From basic strategies to utilizing billing automation with the aid of technology, this CLE is meant to take your practice to the next level.
