Attorney Fees Billing Practices


Learn best practices for attorney fees billing.

Attorneys are advised that the onus of determining a reasonable fee rests with the fee applicant, who provides the court with “specific and detailed evidence” in an organized manner. Typically, attorneys maintain time records for work completed on the cases on which they are working. These records are often managed in an electronic billing system that allows the lawyers to bill separate tasks for each client while distinguishing the services performed. Best practice is to enter the time together with the work performed in order to safeguard accuracy. This white paper discusses billing practice issues that affect the decision of the courts when determining attorney fee awards.
