NOVABAA CLE: The Do's and Dont's of Fee Agreements

  • May 02, 2024
  • 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
  • Zoom


Registration is closed

NOVABAA's CLE Committee is pleased to announce our CLE on the Do's and Don'ts of Fee Agreements!

When's the last time that you reviewed your Fee Agreement?  Have any LEOs regarding Fee Agreements come out since then?  Have the rules on Fee Agreements been modified in any way since you borrowed that language that you're using?  You don't know, do you?  

Well today's your lucky day, NOVABAA Members! Seth Guggenheim worked at the Virginia State Bar as Assistant Ethics Counsel, and Senior Bar Counsel for close to 20 years.  He has seen it all, and can answer your unasked questions.  "Is this provision, appropriate?," "Does this agreement protect me?," "is my language adequate?"  Well wonder no more, Saints!  Seth will be presenting NOVABAA with a CLE Presentation on Fee Agreements that is sure to answer most, if not all of your questions.  Lay awake at night, no longer, Saints!

Seriously, many attorneys have a "set it and forget it" approach to their Fee Agreements, and only return to the language when circumstances require it.  We hope that you find this presentation is as interesting to you as it is to us.  Given the substantial number of small firm and solo attorneys within our membership, I hope that I see all of our younger attorneys, solo, AND small firm attorneys in virtual attendance.

The CLE presentation is FREE, and I encourage everyone to dust off their engagement fee agreements and come with questions.  This is an excellent opportunity for us to ask questions that we probably have been meaning to get answers to for some time.  We will be applying for one hour of CLE Credit, and once it is approved, we will forward to our registered members.   The Presentation is May 2nd from 4-5pm, and we hope to see you there!
