LegalBillAudit.com’s Expertise and Experience
LegalBillAudit.com doesn’t guess. We know what insurers and corporate clients want to see in law firm invoices. This is because we have had experience auditing legal bills for some of the largest insurance companies in the world on down to some of the smaller insurance companies in the U.S. In addition, we have audited legal bills for corporations and governmental entities throughout the U.S.
We have also drafted litigation and billing guidelines for insurers and other types of corporations. LegalBillAudit.com’s President, John Conlon, was a member of the DRI’s Blue Ribbon Committee which drafted the DRI Recommended Litigation & Billing Guidelines that are still in use by many insurance companies.
We also have provided legal bill review training for many insurance company and corporate in-house legal bill review staffs. So, unquestionably, we know how legal bills are reviewed and what is acceptable. And we know what is not acceptable and more importantly, we know how to avoid the unacceptable.
Our bill review services for law firms fall into three areas:
- Pre-Bill Review & Evaluation
LegalBillAudit.com can provide expert review and evaluation evaluation of a law firm’s invoices (pre-bills) before they are submitted to clients. We have had experience with most all the major e-billing programs used by insurers and corporations and we know how they work to make reductions.
In reviewing a firm’s pre-bills, LegalBillAudit.com can provide recommendations on needed changes to the to individual invoice entries. The recommendations made will help ensure that the billing entries will be in compliance with a client’s litigation and billing guidelines or accepted general practices that are used in reviewing legal invoices.
