Creating Profitable Fixed Fee Pricing from the ABA

Alternative Pricing

Source: http://apps.americanbar.org/lpm/lpt/articles/fin01061.html

In recent years law firm pricing has migrated away from hourly rates to alternatives that include fixed or flat fees, percentage and contingency fees. This movement is driven by law firms as clients increase their efforts to obtain hourly rate discounts and apply greater scrutiny to bills, questioning both hours billed and staffing (numbers and levels of lawyers).

Avoid Delays in Your Billing Process with an Effective Distributed Billing Tool

It can be a hurdle when the Back Office has to wait for attorneys to review the pre-bill reports, searching for any errors in the billing. And once the corrections have been reported, the Back Office then has to retrieve the reported changes from the attorney and update the pending bills in the Time and Billing module. This is an unnecessary strain on the Back Office and needlessly duplicates work.

With PerfectLaw’s Distributed Billing module, pre-bill reports are profiled directly to the billing attorney’s matters where the pending bills may be reviewed and edited by the attorney’s themselves, allowing the Back Office to carry on with their other duties.

To see all of the various ways in which the Distributed Billing Module can be utilized, please watch this video.

If you think your firm would be interested in Distributed Billing, please contact our Sales Department to get started.
