The state Court of Appeal has ruled that law firms must notify clients before raising agreed-upon rates, a move that may make lawyers more careful in discussing fees. The three-justice panel on Tuesday rejected a claim by Severson, Werson, Berke & Melchoir against Kenneth Bolinger, whom the San Francisco firm sued after he refused to pay raised rates he wasn't notified about. The firm argued that an agreement to charge "regular hourly rates" meant that it could raise rates without warning.
