About This Course

Attorney client relationships are based on many factors, but underlying it all is a business transaction. And like all business transactions, payment for services rendered is an essential factor. But as billing systems and retainer agreements have become more complicated, they have also come under greater scrutiny. It has become far more common for disciplinary authorities to inspect these agreements and incur significant penalties for those who violate the rules. This informative CLE course, presented by Frankfrut Kurnit ethics attorney Nicole Hyland, will explain the rules governing retainer agreements and billing and offer tips and strategies for creating clear, enforceable agreements that contribute to healthy client relationships. The course will also explain the factors you should consider when rendering your bill, how to get paid after being discharged, tips for ensuring smooth communication with your client and examples of excessive or unreasonable billing that may fall under unwanted scrutiny and leave you liable for penalties.
