LPM helps the modern lawyer become equipped for the changing world of legal practice. This book offers a wealth of practical guidance and inspiration.

- Todd Hutchison, Chair, International Institute of Legal Project Management

As a professor of law and trainer in legal project management (LPM), I can affirm there is no text dealing with LPM on par with Next Stage Legal Project Management: Future-proof Your Matter Management. It is the required text in my law school courses at Vanderbilt Law School and provided to each person I train in the skills and techniques of this vital legal service. In over ten years of working to deploy LPM in law firms, legal departments and law schools, the time for LPM has come and this book will show how it will be done to benefit clients and the lawyers who serve them.

Corporate legal teams and law firms have made significant investments in their legal project management programmes over the past few years. It is time to take stock and, more importantly, envision future interventions. What are the decisive strategies and actions to expedite the value creation of those programmes?

In this book, an international group of 26 experts comprising private practitioners, in-house counsel, technologists, legal operations managers and legal management consultants offer unique perspectives and insights to help you take your legal project management programmes to the next stage. Topics covered include:

  • Methodology;
  • People management;
  • Communication and interaction;
  • Data and performance; and
  • Implementation of legal project management programmes.

Written by practitioners for practitioners, this title will benefit General Counsel, legal COOs, managing partners, practice leaders and other executives running legal services delivery teams who have initiated legal project management programmes and seek new ideas and inspiration for more value creation. Practical and illustrative examples, case studies and many shared experiences direct the reader towards the next level of proficiency in legal project management – future-proofing your matter management.
