How to uncover and end billing fraud at your firm
Abstract: Most attorneys would be adamant that their firm bills clients appropriately — no padding time records, exaggerating expenses or performing unnecessary work to bill a client more. Yet, it occurs, maybe while partners look the other way at questionable billing habits from either a lone attorney or a larger subgroup at the firm. This will open the doors to disciplinary action and litigation, not to mention public injury to a firm’s reputation. This article reviews why it’s critical to uncover and end any billing fraud that might be occurring.
