CLE: Engagement Letters, Timesheets & Billing Tips [Live Webcast]
Running your own practice is rewarding, but it can be hard to juggle all the tasks that are required for running a successful business. Join us via the Internet on March 8, 2017 as Kevin Stine teaches us the importance of engagement letters (and how to draft them), how to keep track of your time, and how to produce accurate bills for clients. Topics include: understanding how you get paid and your monthly communication with the client; why use engagement letters; terms of representation; the importance of retainers; the cost of collection; proofreading your timesheets for accuracy and offering descriptions of tasks performed on the timesheet; dealing with travel and its expenses; the ethical issues and pitfalls to avoid; and much more!
The seminar is presented by the ISBA Standing Committee on Law Office Management and Economics. It qualifies for 1.0 hour MCLE credit, including 1.0 hour Professional Responsibility MCLE credit (subject to approval).
