$30.00 – $95.00

Construction Law Webinar – “The Devil’s in the Details: Proving Attorneys’ Fees under Venture”

Wednesday, August 28, 2019  ♦  12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Central

Download the registration flyer or register securely online below.

About the Webinar: The Texas Supreme Court recently clarified the requirements for proving attorneys’ fees, and trial courts have taken notice. In Venture v. UTSW DVA Healthcare, LLP, the Court held that Texas courts must apply the lodestar method in determining that fees are reasonable and necessary. Attorneys may no longer rely on traditional opinion testimony that the Arthur Anderson factors are satisfied to support a fee award. This webinar will review the current legal landscape on recovering attorneys’ fees and explain what practitioners must do to ensure they can prove up their fees, including recommendations on billing practices, amendments to fee affidavits, and other considerations such as structuring fee agreements. (Eligible for 1.0 hour MCLE credit.)

Presented by: Amy M. Emerson, Allensworth & Porter, LLP, Austin, Texas

Co-Sponsored by the Construction Law Foundation of Texas and The Construction Law Section of the State Bar of Texas
