By Mike Fenger, Esq. and Cynthia Mascio, ACP, CEDS

As we come to the middle of the year, we hope you have enjoyed and learned something from the issues we have presented thus far.  We look forward to continuing to provide you with interesting and topical articles for the rest of the year, leading up to the all-MCLE issue in December.

This issue includes articles on the fate of hourly billing, associate development, managing client expectations, and what attorneys need to know about the new version of Microsoft Office. We hope you find them of interest. As always, if you have suggestions for article topics – or, better yet, you have an idea for an article and would like to write it – you can contact me at Thanks for reading!
