Legal Project Management: A Pathway to Efficiency and Profitability
As law firms face increasing client pressure for greater efficiency, legal project management (LPM) is a critical approach to minimizing write-offs/downs, enhancing client satisfaction and improving profitability. In this webinar, participants will learn how LPM can be used to manage risk, set and meet client expectations and manage matters to keep them — wherever possible — both on time and on budget. Participants will be given an overview of LPM methodologies that can be applied to new matters, as well as examples of approaches that can be applied to closed matters to identify best practices and opportunities for process improvement.
- Identify the core elements of legal project management.
- Recognize how matters teams can use each part of the “LPM toolkit” to manage matters more effectively.
- Distinguish the roles that different business professionals in the firm can play in helping matters run efficiently and profitably.
