Insights: Events Alternative Fee Arrangements that Don't Run Afoul of the Ethical Rules Update

CLE Webinar

Practicing law is more competitive than ever and there are rumors that AI may be utilized for basic legal research and discovery. With the advent of technology and a lowered proclivity by clients to pay for time, law firms with traditional billing practices may find it difficult to compete. While blended rates can make the pain of exchanging time for money less painful, it may not go far enough. In some instances, attorneys may want to consider alternative billing arrangements. Ginger Mimier co-presents this course illustrating the benefits of alternative fee arrangements (AFAs), ethical considerations in creating AFAs, and highlights from some successful alternative client relationships. The presentation explores the ever-increasing popularity of a still under-utilized approach to the practice of law. Learn how to create an AFA without running afoul of the ABA’s ethical rules.

Learning Objectives:

•   Grasp the legal and business framework for sustainable and profitable AFAs
•   Discuss the ABA rules that govern alternative fee arrangements
•   Distinguish and draw parallels for New York and Massachusetts ethical rules
•   Understand the most important ingredients to ethical alternative billing arrangements
