As part of our campaign called “Disrupting the Ebilling Status Quo,” the LEDES Oversight Committee posted a survey to collect feedback from the legal industry to identify issues experienced by each constituency participating in ebilling — vendors (of third party ebilling systems, ebilling administration tools or LEDES invoice generators, law firm practice management and timekeeping systems that create LEDES invoice files, and BI and benchmarking system vendors), law departments that mandate ebilling, law firms and other legal vendors who submit ebills, consultants, educators and legal organizations concerned about ebilling.
The survey closed on April 1st, and we are happy to report that we had 141 responses, by far our most successful survey to date.
We are organizing the responses for evaluation. Look for more information on what we found in May, and the follow-on steps that will be taken by the LOC to right the course of ebilling.
We thank everyone who provided feedback on this important topic.
