Course Overview

Legal services have faced a wealth of change over the last 10 years, particularly with regards to clients’ attitude as to costs. The use of fixed fees continues to rise and is soon likely to be the normal way of charging for legal services as opposed to applying an hourly rate.

During this session Sue Edwards of Law Hound will discuss the SRA research into the rise of fixed fees and will examine the most common barriers to using fixed fees.

In addition, this session will provide viewers with practical guidance on overcoming barriers including examining expenses, using tools, defining the scope of work agreed and unbundling.
