Online CLE Fee Arrangements

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CLE Fee Arrangements Webinar. Today's economic challenges and rapidly evolving market trends have encouraged various sectors from the professional services industry to reassess their business practices. As clients relentlessly demand more transparency and predictable pricing, the percentage of professionals employing the billable hour model has lessened and the buzz about Alternative Fee Arrangements (AFAs) has gained its momentum in the legal world. While AFAs offer numerous advantages to improve client relationships, these arrangements may not be suitable for every legal matter. Thus, it is crucial for firms to exercise due diligence and remain apace with the recent developments to avoid potential legal issues and risks.

In this two-hour Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an overview of the latest trends and best practices with respect to Alternative Fee Arrangements. Speakers will also help attendees better understand the important aspects of this significant topic and offer insights on how to apply this business trend to their company and/or clients.
