Why use LEDES e-billing codes?

LEDES e-billing codes are recognized as the industry-leading standards. Whether for law firms or in-house corporate legal departments, LEDES and UTBMS codes add mutual benefit.

Improve income and spend analysis

LEDES format codes categorize your sources of income and expenditure to much greater length than a typical PDF invoice, giving you better insight into the cost- and profit centers of your law firm.

Increase billing compliance

With industry-recognized e-billing and invoice formats, increase your billing compliance through creating invoices that are understood by any client, at the same time as giving them better insight into their expenses.

Eliminate confusion

Integrate new staff faster by standardizing instead of using unique language specific to your law firm, and increase efficiency through having a single e-billing code guideline that's recognized globally.
