Most lawyers are lawyers, not IT experts. Many lawyers will forgo technological advances for immediate utility if it imposes a steep learning curve that takes away from productivity.
We work with legal professionals to select technology and tools that are user-friendly and support project management objectives.
Using gut instinct to price legal matters causes lost revenue and clients. We help you accurately factor in potential variables and risks that increase cost or time.
We use various methods including bottom-up, top-down, parametric, PERT, and other estimating techniques depending on your needs.

A project management office (PMO) defines, maintains, and ensures project management standards across an organization. They also act as a repository and resource library for templates, tools, and other resources.
Traditional - Predictive - Waterfall
Projects are comprehensively scoped and planned upfront. Formal processes take the team through the initiating, planning, executing, monitoring/controlling, and closing phases. Comprehensive documentation in each phase acts as a guidebook for next steps reducing unexpected events and risks. Its prescriptive methodology is best suited for medium to large-scale projects.
Projects use a continuous cycle of planning and execution in 1-week to 1-month periods. The focus is more on controlling work in progress, collaboration, and rapid feedback than prescriptive processes. It uses a lightweight framework with less documentation (compared to Traditional) to plan work before each iterative cycle. Its incremental approach allows legal team to flex as needed and is suitable for small to medium-scale projects and smaller teams (≤ 9).
Projects combine two (or more) different methodologies to create a new method customized to individual project needs. For example, one might take advantage of traditional project management's initiating and planning phase if a project would benefit from a comprehensive project plan but choose to execute and close the project using Scrum's more flexible (Agile) framework.
