Jim Hassett, who writes he influential Legal Business Development blog, will be moderating a discussion of how boutique firms are delivering greater value using alternative fees.  The West Legalworks webinar will take place on March 17 at 12:30 Eastern.  Details are here.  I honored to be on the panel that Jim assembled, which also includes Fred Bartlit, founder of Bartlit Beck, the Litigation Boutique of the Year, Jay Shepard of the Shepard Law Group and Bruce Raymond of Raymond & Bennett. 

Here’s the program description:

In this panel, the author of a recent review of alternative fees will discuss the real world issues of "how to do it" with founders of several leading firms that are committed to helping lawyers move away from the billable hour.  The discussion will focus on the real world lessons learned in hundreds of matters, including:

  • Case studies of several different alternative billing strategies
  • A discussion of how to set prices successfully
  • "From the trenches" advice on how to get started, and when

This promises to be a most interesting discussion.  I’ll be wearing green.  Hope you’ll join us.
