  1. I’m surprised this is legal – Years ago something like this was published, regarding fees, and was found to be a form a price fixing. I’m interested in how this differs. Thank you.

  2. The Fee Reference does not list specific prices, it only lists ranges and averages; it is meant to show directional trends and help those who set prices better think through an overall fee/pricing strategy. There is nothing in the book that you could “copy” and use as actual, specific prices. (It is however still a helpful tool if used properly).
