Real-Life Applications of Alternative Fee Arrangements

Hosted by Rocket Matter CEO Larry Port

 

Instruction Time: 50 Minutes

1 Substantive Credit

Convene Market Street

2001 Market Street 2nd Floor

Philadelphia, PA 19103

 

Description:

Have you been wanting to implement alternative fee arrangements in your practice, but don’t know how? It’s one thing respond to a client’s needs by moving away from the strict billable hour, but something different to be the one to propose it. Altman Weil’s latest Law Firms in Transition survey showed a “7-year trend of compelling success enjoyed by firms that take a proactive approach to alternative fee arrangements.” Knowing when to be proactive may allow you to be a part of the 40% of firms who report increased profitability from their non-hourly projects.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • We’ll teach you about commonly used alternative fee arrangements, and discuss reasons why some may be more successful than others in certain firms.
  • We’ll teach you how solo, small and medium sized firms can easily approach clients with alternative fee arrangements that are creative, distribute risk, and have the potential for increased profitability.
  • We’ll take you through hypothetical situations that clients may approach you with, and show you how to craft agreements that are responsive, and clearly set expectations on both sides.
  • Finally, we’ll show you how you can easily implement and track AFAs utilizing your practice management software.
