While other professions have long recognized the value of project management software, most law firms have been slow to implement this useful tool into their practices. Administrators at the most progressive legal practices are now discovering how Legal Project Management (LPM) can increase efficiency for complex legal matters requiring multiple tasks.

Legal Project Management white paperWith LPM, law firms can offer clients the convenience of fixed fee services while also promoting the matter’s profitability. This is accomplished in several ways.

  1. Administrators are able to take a real-time look at work on the project, instead of waiting until the matter’s completion. This allows the firm to promptly:
    • Calculate the profitability of a matter proactively
    • Determine what aspects of the project are negatively affecting the profit margin
    • Manage matter profitability
    • Make proactive changes before the work exceeds the allotted budget.
  2. LPM also gives law firms the right tools for planning future projects. By reviewing completed projects, administrators can:
    • Gain insight into the best methods of increasing profitability for similar matters in the future.
    • Leverage the knowledge and experience gained during the initial project by repeating the same plan with greater efficiency.

LPM also promotes healthy, ongoing attorney-client relationships. Billing disputes between law firms and their clients occur often. No one wants to be hit with an unexpected bill at the back end of a service. By planning a matter with LPM, your firm can complete delivery on time and within the established budget. Through this effective management of the client’s expectations, the firm gains a happy client, favorable referrals, and repeat business.

When used correctly, the features of LPM can lead to increased revenues for the firm. To truly gain the most value from a LPM system, you must choose technology that will meet your project management and billing goals.
