Mr. Wouansi spent nearly two decades auditing legal invoices from law firms across 55 countries. Using each client’s outside counsel billing guidelines, Mr. Wouansi reduced legal invoices by $1.5 billion dollars. In 2018, Mr. Wouansi decided to switch sides. He devoted his time to building legal billing software applications that help law firms comply with their client’s billing guidelines and drastically reduce legal e-billing reductions while saving firms time formerly spent on the legal invoice appeal process.

Appreciations from industry experts

ALB became a key player on our billing team to help us achieve compliance with insurance defense practices to ensure we were paid fairly. ALB integrates with our billing software, Clio, and provides a review of time entries when they are entered. It evaluates each time and expense entry for required information and detail so that any updates to the time entry can be made while the activities are fresh on the attorney's minds—not three months later after being flagged by the e-billing service provider. ALB also customizes the rules for each e-billing service and billing guidelines. We finally felt like we could take back control of the billing process and ensure that our legal team was being paid fairly. We highly recommend adding ALB to your billing process.
