E-billing benefits law firms, too
Abstract: In-house legal departments typically prefer electronic bills to paper statements because they save companies considerable time and money. Despite some technology and training costs, e-billing can benefit law firms as well. But many are still dragging their feet making the transition, or if they have an e-billing system they’re reluctant to use it. There are, of course, some drawbacks to e-billing, but it offers faster payment, reduced errors, improved marketing opportunities, and a positive environmental impact. And, more and more clients are demanding it. Eventually, almost all firms will be expected to bill clients electronically.
