Project Management & Productivity Experts
Lex provides law firms, in-house legal departments, government agencies, nonprofits, and legal vendors across the United States with on-site and remote project management and technology services. Our experts aid legal organizations in delivering more value to customers, minimizing waste, maximizing efficiency, and decreasing risk.
You may be working on a complex case that needs temporary project management support, or you may desire to establish your own project management office. Either way, we work with litigation firms that require project management support so they can focus on lawyering.
We also work with corporations involved in litigation that retain outside counsel and ensure there is a project plan to facilitate the completion of litigation projects as efficiently and effectively as possible. This helps corporations save on legal spending and supports private law firms that do not have a legal project manager on staff.
We assist public sector organizations and non-profits in establishing process improvement services and best practices in project management so that they can more easily comply with applicable laws and regulations and meet other organizational goals.
Take your place among the expanding number of legal organizations and enterprises that have witnessed revolutionary changes in the provision of legal services. See our services below to find out what we can do for you.
Traditional - Predictive/Waterfall
Take the "complex" out of complex legal matters. Traditional project management guides you through scoping and planning upfront. Formal processes steer the team through the initiating, planning, executing, monitoring/controlling, and closing phases of your legal cases and matters with less stress and greater productivity. Best practices in documentation guide your team through next steps, reducing unexpected events and risks. Traditional project management methodology is best suited for medium to large-scale legal projects and any size legal team, large or small.
Agile - Scrum
In a fast-paced office where circumstances change from one moment to the next, you need a methodology that accommodates rapid adaptation to change. The Agile: Scrum method uses a continuous cycle of planning and execution in 1-week to 1-month periods. The focus is more on controlling work in progress, improved collaboration, and rapid feedback (status updates) rather than prescriptive processes. This lightweight framework uses cutting-edge processes to plan work before each iterative cycle. Its incremental approach allows the legal team to flex as needed and is suitable for small to medium-scale projects and teams of 3-9 people.
Hybrid - The Best of Both Worlds
Hybrid project management (combining two or different project frameworks), helps you create a customized method to support your legal project needs. You might take advantage of traditional project management's initiating and planning phase if a complex legal matter would benefit from a comprehensive project plan but choose to execute and close the project using Scrum's more flexible (Agile) framework. With Hybrid project management, you benefit from maximum adaptation in project planning and execution.
