Legal Project Management
We help new and established law firms and legal departments develop a proactive, disciplined approach to managing legal work that involves defining, planning, budgeting, executing, and evaluating a legal matter. We train attorneys and support staff on the application of skills, tools, and techniques to achieve legal project objectives and provide tools for improving communication to set and meet client expectations.
Legal Process Improvement
Our legal process improvement services include evaluation of your current law firm practices and development of a repeatable model of execution. This includes enhancing or re-engineering work processes by analyzing its existing state, identifying areas for increased efficiencies, and eliminating waste or rework to deliver desired business outcomes.
Lex Project Management Consulting Group was founded with a single mission: to help legal professionals adapt to the changing legal climate. We approach our clients with fresh eyes to develop customized, unique legal project management strategies. While many trained project managers are available, very few of them have ever worked on a legal matter in a law department or law firm. When implementing legal project management and selecting a methodology to complement your organization, you want a consultant that understands the legal services industry.
Industrial project management disciplines can be valuable, but they can also be extremely complex and quantitative. Many project management disciplines were designed to impose absolute uniformity and precision on the task of producing identical things like razor blades and widgets. Not all project management disciplines are intended to support and foster creativity and innovation in a legal department or law firm setting.
A project manager who may be well-versed in construction or software doesn't mean they have the expertise to understand the functional processes of managing a complex litigation or transactional matter. Similarly, being a paralegal or attorney does does not make one a skilled project manager. That's why we are so proud to share our "legal project management" services, bringing law and project management together.
