The Australian Legal Affairs Section Devoted to the Billable Hour

Our Australian colleague John Chisholm wrote about The Australian Legal Affairs Section of August 20th being primarily devoted to the problems and hopeful demise of the billable hour.

All the articles are worth reading, but the one that caught my eye was devoted to Lavan Legal, the Perth firm that is on track to eliminate timesheets in approximately two years.

This is a 200+ lawyer firm. So much for the argument that only smaller firms can achieve this transition.

John also reports that next week’s Legal Affairs Section (it runs every Friday) will also have more articles dedicated to this topic.

Obviously we are nearing a tipping point Down Under.

Good on Ya Aussies!
