Productivity Bit: Save on Lawyers - Be More Organized

I think this is an idea that applies as much to any professional service (think of all those billable hours from accountants sorting through shoeboxes of receipts in April), but it's particularly true for lawyers, from Rick Segal:

Over the years, I’ve spent a lot of time with lawyers and staring at legal bills. In probably 90 cases out of a 100, out of control bills are a direct and measurable result of client disorganization. Essentially, business people fail to agree on exactly what the specific deal terms are in combination with the ‘what if’ scenarios.
