The Problem With Billable Hours

They Work Long Hours, but What About Results? is an interesting Oct. 6, 2012 article from the New York Times. It points out two important facts. First, many corporations, including law firms do not evaluate based upon efficiency. Second, when an employee is billed out per hour, efficiency is in conflict with the real world. Nothing new here, but the article is an interesting read.

Great article that allows younger and even older attorneys to keep in mind that the costs of legal services need to be aligned with the value we bring. This is a must in our current legal environment.
