In an ideal world, lawyers would be able to spend most of their day on billable work. In reality, though, the average lawyer bills for less than three hours in an average workday. The rest of that time typically goes toward administrative tasks, business operations, and, of course, the occasional lunch break away from their desk. But lawyers shouldn’t have to cut out their lunch breaks to bill more time.
Thankfully, there are ways to optimize your billing and payments process to eliminate bottlenecks, improve cash flow, and free up more time for your team to focus on firm growth. Start by evaluating the external and internal processes necessary to create an efficient system.
