Unbundling offers many advantages to both clients and lawyers.  Many unbundling lawyers have found that this business model helps to improve cashflow, relieve stress, and provide services supporting access to justice.  But can unbundling also earn you enough money to justify making these changes?  Is it really true that unbundling can be “lucrative” and “profitable” in both a solo practice and a law firm setting?

This is the topic we will tackle at the next meeting of the CBABC Unbundled Legal Services Section on February 20th.  We have assembled a skilled panel to describe their experiences with unbundling and to discuss what factors can improve not just cashflow but also profitability.
