No matter how many hours you work, it’s the ones that are billed to clients that serve as the productivity measure in law firms. In addition to the attendant financial rewards, more billed time generally means better performance for the individual lawyer. The goal, then, is to bill more time. There are three ways to increase the billables attributed to you: (1) improved legal skills, (2) increased leverage of others, and (3) better use and capture of the hours you’re working. The first and second come with experience. The third will immediately produce results in hours gained, one 10th at a time.
