FM14 Profitability via Legal Project Management

Pamela Woldow, Esq.

Law firms should consider legal project management (LPM) a vital key to profitability, especially in light of clients’ increasing demands for alternative fee arrangements and cost containment. LPM can increase the predictability of fees and costs, minimize or eliminate surprises, reduce write-downs and write-offs, and improve communications with clients while focusing on the clients’ true needs. Join this session to learn how your firm can use LPM to increase its profitability.
