Fee Agreement Workshop: Supreme Court Rules and Ethical Recommendations 2022

Product ID: CA3339R
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Produced by the Solo, Small Firm & General Practice Section of the State Bar of Wisconsin in partnership with State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE®

Skills to collect the bills

Have you inherited your fee agreements from another lawyer or firm? Or maybe you’ve been recycling the same fee agreement language for many years. Beware — some older fee agreements contain provisions that are prohibited by ethical rules. Do you know if the fee agreements you provide to clients are ethically sound? If you aren’t sure, it’s time to give them another look.

That’s where the Fee Agreement Workshop: Supreme Court Rules and Ethical Recommendations webcast comes in. State Bar of Wisconsin Ethics Counsel Aviva Meridian Kaiser and Law Practice Assistance Manager Christopher C. Shattuck will guide you through the relevant Supreme Court Rules governing fee agreements. They’ll also provide risk management advice so you know what to avoid when drafting or revising your fee agreements.

We can agree to that

After you have a clear understanding of the relevant rules, a panel of solo and small firm attorneys will give tips on best practices for implementing new fee agreements or revising existing ones.
