Best Practices in Using Billing & Invoicing as a Business & Client Development Tool©

Thursday, June 1, 2017 - 2-3 p.m. CST/ 3-4 p.m. EST

DESCRIPTION: Join Jennifer Petrone Dezso, Principal of the industry-leading BTI Consulting Group and award-winning client development expert Julie Savarino, Attorney and Managing Director, Business Development Inc., to stay up to date on the best practices in billing and invoicing for business and client development purposes. Most lawyers do not embrace just how important billing and invoicing is to law firm clients. Learn how to make the most of billing and invoicing, which can save lawyers and law firms significant non-billable time, and improve collection times, realization and clients' levels of satisfaction with the law firm and its services. Attendees will gain practical and useful strategies, tools, formatting, text and other useful billing and invoicing information, which can enhance attorney-client relationships and lead to new business opportunities.
