A Case Study at the Cutting Edge: Legal Project Management in Australia
Legal Leadership LLC
The legal profession, sad to say, rewards its denizens with relatively few breakout moments, a dearth of challenges that allow its movers and shakers to break new ground. All the talk about law’s “New Normal” notwithstanding, the legal landscape is a pretty conventional place, populated by more “first followers” than “first movers.”
That’s why it was both a privilege and a career highlight to work with King & Wood Mallesons to roll out Australia’s first comprehensive Legal Project Management (LPM) initiative.
