Thinking Beyond the Billable Hour (Resilient Lawyer Series, MBA)


December 1, 2020 12:00 pm


Thinking Beyond the Billable Hour, part of the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Resilient Lawyer Series, takes a deep dive into fee structures that go beyond the traditional hourly model of billing and, instead, focuses on options for value billing and collections that are more aligned with clients’ needs and abilities. This will give an overview of alternative fee agreements and electronic payment processing.

The Resilient Lawyer Series, launched in October 2020, is a series of programs designed to guide new and experienced attorneys through the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recession. Through multiple virtual events, our experts will provide a wealth of information to help you start, expand or pivot a practice; break into other practice areas; and otherwise adjust to the current legal landscape.

In a time of unexpected twists and turns, along with related adjustments and adaptations, the Massachusetts Bar Association recognizes that many lawyers throughout the commonwealth are facing less business, layoffs and general job uncertainty.

Become a resilient lawyer and learn new skills and career development techniques to respond to the downturn in business while growing and adapting your practice in the new normal.

This webinar will be hosted using Zoom. Registration is required by 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 1, to participate in this program. After you register with the MBA, please look for an email from MassBar Education with the Webinar ID and Password. The email will be sent after 9:30 a.m. on Dec. 1.
