|Summary:||"In The Power of Legal Project Management: A Practical Handbook, renowned legal project management experts Susan Raridon Lambreth and David Rueff Jr. provide the fundamental principles and framework that will allow any individual lawyer, in any practice setting, to integrate project management into his or her own practice. They also provide the first comprehensive review and discussion of the business reasons supporting legal project management (LPM), the important relationship between budgeting and pricing, as well as the ethical considerations and constraints in implementation of project management by lawyers. This book is an invaluable resource for any lawyer interested in applying LPM principles to their matters, either from start to finish or in small pieces. And it contains immensely useful advice for lawyers seeking practical tips and guidance on providing increased value to clients. You will find all the tools and methodologies you will need to begin integrating LPM into your practice immediately. Small firms, large firms, and in-house law departments will all benefit from the concepts described and explained, and the many examples provided. In an extensive series of appendices, law firms, legal departments, consultants, and major providers of project management software solutions explain the keys to implementing various elements of LPM. Seventeen case studies from firms and corporate counsel will arm you with evidence of how LPM can improve your delivery of legal services. Specific guidance on implementation includes such crucial topics as staffing, compensation, knowledge management, budgeting, and client communication. In short, Lambreth and Rueff have provided, in a single digestible volume, the first indispensable and practical LPM implementation guide for individuals, firms, and institutions - the one book you need in order to understand and use LPM in your practice, and deliver more value for you and your clients"--Unedited summary from book jacket|
