Billing Best Practices and Considerations for Paralegals

Learn practical billing practices and 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 topic will address the common billing pitfalls that paralegals face and offer best practice solutions to those problems, and provide clear instructions on how to handle common legal billing requirements and manage a streamlined workflow. It will cover every aspect of the billing process, including time and cost tracking and client retainer management. It is critical to have a deep understanding of proper billing procedures to ensure compliance requirements are met and enhance the profitability of a law firm.
