Scottish Legal Conference
Maximise Fee Income using Intelligent Cloud Computing
09.30am, 2.00pm or 5.30pm
Claim CPD Time
Recent research has shown that most legal firms are not capitalising on their fee income. Yet most law firms focus on new client capture whilst not charging accurately or timeously for the work already carried out.
This is due to a variety of factors such as:-
Lack of accurate time records, outsourcing to third parties such as law accountants, lengthy time delays between case completion and billing, fee disputes with clients, lack of interim billing, excessive discounting of fees and the list goes on……………………………
How can your law firm CAPITALISE on these opportunities?
At this conference we will answer this question. We will look at practical methods which will enable you to harness your already existing billing potential.
Angela Mitchell CA CTA, Tax Director, RSM Tenon, will discuss tax tips and planning opportunities for legal practices in order to reduce partners’ exposure to higher rates of income tax.
Brian Inkster, Inksters Solicitors, will present his practical experience of implementing “Intelligent Cloud Computing” and the positive impact this has had for his firm.
James Henigan, Managing Director, RISE, will present a summary of the Rise cloud platform (DataCenter on Demand) and their partnership with Denovo, focusing on adoption trends of the SMB marketplace and why companies should not be fearful of trusting their data to cloud based infrastructure and the inherent benefits that can be realised by doing so.
Margaret Buchanan of Denovo Business Intelligence, will demonstrate a cost-effective way to outsource the burden of managing and maintaining hardware and software platforms, by showing live access to “the cloud“ and by using a couple of work type examples demonstrate WIP Limits being reached, Accurate Charges being Captured, Automated Production of Bills and automation of government forms and documents.
The Conference is at the Apex International Hotel, 31-35 Grassmarket, Edinburgh EH1 2HS on 19 June. The programme is repeated in three slots (9.30am, 2.00pm and 5.30pm) during the day so you can choose the time that suits you best.
