Overview

Legal Fees: Law & Management is a comprehensive reference for lawyers, businesses, government agencies, academics, and judges. In the first half of the book, Toothman and Ross summarize the law of legal fees, including the lawyer-client relationship, improper billing practices, fee collection issues, fee shifting, and contingent fees. The second half provides practical advice for managing legal fees, including selection of counsel, retention agreements, budgeting, fee dispute resolution, and bill auditing.

"Beyond its explicit billing-related guidance, Legal Fees offers law firm readers valuable insights into the comparative value of various practitioner activities from the client's perspective. By helping lawyers empathize more deeply with client needs, the book should help avert many of the ethical missteps that complex professional rules were intended to restrain. . . . an analytically impressive yet highly readable new book. . ."
