Earning a fee is difficult enough – collecting it can be even harder. Join us for a program that will focus on how to ensure that your hard work literally pays off.
In theory, you do great work for a client, send them the bill and they send back a check or a credit card payment. However, we all know that sometimes that is not the reality. Getting paid hinges on client expectations and, while you may think they are out of your control, there are concrete steps that you can take and procedures you can follow that will make it easier to collect your fee.
Speakers from different practice areas will discuss how to set client expectations at the beginning of the matter, important tips for invoicing and time sheets that will induce your client to make payment, vital clauses for every retainer agreement, how to collect outstanding fees and how to do all of this while staying in compliance with the RPC’s.
