Legal Project Management

Legal Project Management2020-02-20T17:20:24+00:00

The UK legal sector continues to grow and is worth almost £26 billion, according to research commissioned by the Law Society.

This headline masks the changing face of legal services and the demand for more efficient ways of working. New market entrants, demands from project management savvy clients and the shift to alternative fee arrangements, in particular fixed fees, all necessitate change in the industry. Those who embrace this change will succeed, whereas firms that fail to equip themselves for the challenge will undoubtedly suffer.

We have been working with clients in this unique sector for many years. Our depth experience is demonstrated by our authoring of the only LPM course specifically designed for fee earners that has been independently assessed and Accredited by the APM; The Chartered Body for Project Management.

Law books, scales and a gavel

We work with law firms and in-house legal teams helping them develop their approach to LPM based on best practice. We work with a keen eye for practical tools that add immediate value for busy fee earners and their clients. As a Microsoft Gold Partner for PPM we are uniquely placed to lever the Microsoft Power Platform to create ground breaking LPM technology solutions.
