Comprehensive Collection of Online "Billable Hour" Resources Now Available
The Billable Hour Company has compiled a comprehensive collection of resources addressing the concept of the "billable hour" and the related notion of value billing.

PR9.NET February 21, 2006 - Ardsley, New York — Many professionals—including lawyers, accountants and consultants—bill their clients according to the amount of time spent on a project, a concept known as the "billable hour." The Billable Hour Company has compiled a comprehensive collection of resources addressing this concept and the related notion of value billing. The "Billable Hour Resources Page" can be found at www.TheBillableHour.com/resources.php.
The Resources Page links to books, articles, studies and reports, and blog posts on the subject. The collection spans more than a decade, from a 1993 article that appeared in Law Practice Management magazine to a number of February 2006 posts at a blog called the [non]billable hour. Lisa Solomon, a practicing lawyer and partner in The Billable Hour Company, vetted all of the listed items for relevance before adding them to the collection.
"While the utility and proper role of the 'billable hour' is hotly debated in the legal community, until now there hasn't been a single comprehensive source for links to writings on the subject," said Billable Hour Company partner Mark Solomon. "Although our timepieces are certainly a comment on the 'billable hour,' hopefully they inject some humor into the lives of lawyers and others for whom that construct looms large. But we also wanted to encourage serious consideration of the issues involved in the billable hour/value billing discussion."
Since the controversy rages on, the Solomons plan to update the Resources Page on a regular basis. Anyone who is interested in automatically receiving notice of the updates can subscribe to the Resources Page RSS feed by visiting www.TheBillableHour.com/resources.php or adding that URL to their feed reader.
