    Few lawyers realize how complex a fee collection matter can be until it is too late. And even fewer realize how key provisions in a retainer agreement can protect them long in advance. In this program, we will use a hypothetical to discuss how to put yourself in the best position to collect your fees, both before and after they arise.

    Join our distinguished panel as they discuss:

    • The ethical rules relating to legal fees
    • Writing the best possible retainer letter
    • Mandatory fee arbitration
    • Whether to seek fees in court or arbitration
    • Retaining and charging liens
    • Avoiding malpractice counterclaims
    • Using experts to support your claim
