Alternative Fee Arrangements: A Guide for Law Firms


(Almost) everything you need to know to get started and start thinking seriously and on an informed basis about Alternative Fee Arrangements. What is the underlying reasons for the growing demand for Alternative Fee Arrangements? What are the tools you need to implement Alternative Fee Arrangements? What does convergence and portfolio pricing mean? What are legal project managers and legal project management? Why do you need to add to your management staff, or not?

I also discuss training lawyers regarding AFA's and legal project management. If this were a late night commercial I might say "wait!! there's even more." Or, all of this for free. (Am I nuts? What's the catch? There isn't any). Perhaps you will call us to work with you and your firm on implementing an Alternative Fee Arrangement Program. Or, you might consider buying Navigating the Perfect Storm: Recruiting, Training and Retaining Lawyers in the Coming Decade (Ark Press, 2010)

I believe you will find this an excellent beginner's guide and a fairly good beginner's guide. Given the scope of these pieces, the reader, after reading these materials will have the ability to move on to the intermediate playing field.
