Lewis and Roca attorney, Dan Polsenberg, is among a panel of speakers at the American Bar Association's Annual Meeting. "Mourning the Death of the Billable Hour: Successfully Transitioning to Alternative Billing Methods" will be presented on Saturday, August 9, 2008 at 8:30 am.
A panel discussion regarding how law firms have successfully transitioned to billing methods other than hourly, and a general overview of these alternative methods. The panel will include five diverse speakers, including those with plaintiff, defense and insurance perspectives, along with diversity as per ABA Goal IX. The program will emphasize two law firms and a corporation that are successfully utilizing billing methods other than the “traditional” hourly method to both increase revenue and quality of life for the lawyers at these firms. The program will focus not just on the theoretical debate surrounding the topic, including the law student perspective, but more specifically on how the transition to other billing models has been successful.
