UK e-billing format comes closer to reality

The consultation period on a research paper released by the Legal IT Innovators Group (Litig) closes today (15 December). The group of 23 law firms, including Beachcroft Wansbroughs, Eversheds and Wragge & Co, plus Barclays, is seeking comments on its eight-month initiative to agree a standard e-billing format in the UK. The US legal market already has a standard e-billing format known as LEDES, developed by PricewaterhouseCoopers.
