Legal Project Management: An Expanding Perspective

The most significant news on the legal project management (LPM) front is that the thinking is evolving about the roles and responsibilities of the players. Until fairly recently, LPM was seen as a re-engineering of legal service delivery that took place primarily within the law firm. In other words, the firms promised their clients that better work process management and budgeting control would produce more efficient, predictable and cost-effective service. In this model, early-adopter law firms trained their lawyers to “do” LPM. The clients were beneficiaries, but not necessarily active co-participants; they just waited to see if the firms’ new tools, techniques and technology would pay off.
