Why Seek Training in Legal Project Management?

As the economic downturn continues, law firm productivity has dropped dramatically.  At the same time, clients facing financial distress are asking for lower rates or prices.   Law firms need to protect their profit margins on their work by effective scoping and more active management of the work.   In fact, pricing pressure demands scope expertise to prevent excessive write-downs/offs.   This is the essence of legal project management – planning and managing your matters to achieve the client’s and firm’s goals for efficiency, cost-effectiveness and predictability.  Now is the perfect time to focus on it – while some of your professionals have some downtime working from home or with practices that are slower and in advance of needing to manage your matters in a very different way in the past to meet the client fee pressures.

While law firms are focusing their budgets on only “essential” programs, having a sufficient LPM team of professionals or training your lawyers IS essential for the protection of your firm’s profit margins.  

This is a critical time to both upskill your professionals to accomplish this and develop strategies for cost-effective, client-centric representation on the other side of this downturn.  All types of professionals can be trained in these skills:

  • Lawyers – ranging from associates to partners
  • Paralegals – who have become legal project managers in some firms
  • Legal assistants – rebranded as “client service specialists” with their LPM training in other firms

Just to name a few …

While most successful lawyers already do some aspects of what is now called legal project management, many clients today expect law firms to use a more structured and organized approach to handling matters and to apply many of the project management approaches that are common in their companies.  

Lawyers and other legal professionals are focusing on LPM for the following reasons:

  • An increasing number of clients are pushing for fee estimates, scoping of work and greater efficiencies in the handling of their work;
  • Better use of LPM techniques can minimize the significant write-offs and write-downs currently common in law firms;
  • Enhanced LPM can lead to opportunities to win more RFPs;
  • A growing number of clients are asking for trained legal project managers on their matters; and
  • Application of LPM approaches create greater internal teamwork, enhance lawyer and staff morale/retention and improve client relationships.

Many expect that project management will become an essential skill for lawyers and other legal professionals, much like it is used in other leading professional services firms and consultancies.  It can help ensure greater client satisfaction, more profitable matters and more satisfying work.  

About the Course

This highly interactive course provides a simple, yet powerful framework for applying LPM techniques and approaches to your legal matters immediately and building more effective budgets.  You learn using a case study based on actual legal matters.

The programme provides:

  • An understanding of all of the key legal project management concepts and how to talk to your clients credibly about them;
  • Examples of how legal departments and law firms are implementing LPM for different types of practice areas;
  • A skills-based approach to learning the fundamental LPM techniques such as stakeholder analysis, scoping of work, project plans and budgets, managing scope changes and conducting end-of-matter debriefs;

The primary elements of the programme include:

  • Upfront discussion of client’s objectives/expectations – including ensuring the firm and client are on the “same page” and that all members of the legal team understand these;
  • Understanding the key decision-makers in the client who can affect the legal outcomes and success of a matter;
  • Detailed “scoping” of work
  • Breaking down the work into component parts to develop more accurate budgets and to be able to manage the work and the legal team efficiently and effectively;
  • Understanding how budgets are developed
  • More active management of the matter throughout, including task assignment and monitoring assignment completion;

  • End of matter debriefing/lessons learned.
