Wednesday, November 7, 2012 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA

 

Description:

The panel will discuss the life cycle of attorneys' fee disputes.  The panel will first discuss managing a client's expectation at the commencement of the attorney-client relationship, and the importance of the engagement letter.  The panel will further discuss the management of the attorney-client relationship once a fee dispute arises, and how to extract yourself from that relationship while complying with the Rules of Professional Conduct.  Finally, the panel will discuss collections on attorneys' fees, including the risk factors involved in deciding whether to try to collect or whether to walk away.
