Setting Fees for Your Removal Practice: A Workshop and Focus Group
January 30, 2019
AILA National Office, Washington, District of Columbia, USA
This program is unusual. It is a hands-on workshop, so after you register we will send you a questionnaire in advance to collect the data from your business you will need to evaluate your finances in real time. This questionnaire takes most lawyers 30 minutes to complete and is necessary to get the most from the program. But not having all the answers in the questionnaire will not bar you from learning this important process.
By the end of the program, attendees will:
- Identify the Baseline of Your Overhead Expenses
- Identify the True Hourly Rate You Are Currently Working
- Determine a Reasonable Fee Baseline and Consider Factors to Adjust Up or Down
- Discuss Applicable Ethics Rules and Apply an Ethics Lens to Process
- Learn the Factors That Go into Market Research for Setting a Fee
- Start on Your Own Market Research and Strategize Fee Adjustments
- Develop a Plan for Fee Adjustments and Performance Data Collection in Your Firm
The schedule will be:
|8:00 am||Registration begins|
|8:15 am||Pre-Program Focus Group Discussion and Light Breakfast (Included with Registration)
Please arrive on time so that we can have a productive focus group discussion and breakfast before we get started.
