Can anyone recommend an app or software for tracking billable hours to make it easier to put together and submit timesheets? I work for a small firm and all of our billing/invoicing is done manually.

I don’t need to note how much a particular client pays per hour.

Staffing several associates from different practice areas together to do a lot of different things on what was a very small case to begin with is so cool!

The client feels we understand their business, our associates ramp up their hours, and our firm boosts its revenue! Corporate clients, after all, usually pay up without asking questions.

Remember: You can turn even the smallest case into a multi-million case.
