Why Can't I Update My Contingency Fee Award on a Matter?

Objective:

  • Can't Change Reward
  • Can't Update Contingency Fee
  • Unable to Update Award 
  • Unable to save Award 

Environment:

  • Clio Manage

Additional Information:

Answer:

The Contingency Fee has already been billed or Your Billing Rate Visibility is set to None.

 

Once a Contingency Fee reward has been Billed it cannot be edited as it is locked onto a Bill.

You would need to void or delete the Bill to update the reward.

 

If you wish to avoid voiding or deleting the Bill, you can create a Flat Rate time entry in order to bill for the difference between the original Contingency Award and the new Contingency Award.

Here are the steps to update Billing Rate Visibility.
