Billing Best Practices and Consideration for Paralegals


Paralegals play a crucial role in law firms, so it is critical to have a deep understanding of proper billing procedures.

Billing procedures often present various complexities and time-consuming tasks for any role in the legal profession, paralegals included. These processes can be challenging for paralegals, making it difficult to accomplish the rest of their day-to-day activities. The obstacles that accompany legal billing procedures are not just inefficient, but they can lead to costly mistakes like missed time, dropped costs, and inaccurate billings. This white paper addresses the common billing pitfalls that paralegals face and offers best-practice solutions to those problems.
