Mechanics of Practice: Billing, Types of Client Engagement, and Financial Arrangements [01:00:35]

Why are billing and timekeeping important, and what are the ethical issues and concerns?  Learn the differences between full scope representation and limited scope representation, and what brief advice, drafting, and pro per coaching entail.  Explore what financial arrangements will work in your practice: hourly, flat rate, not to exceed price ceilings, contingent, sliding scale, and hybrids of any of these arrangements.  See how to draft letters defining the rules of engagement, disengagement, and non-engagement.
