Legal Project Management is an innovative approach to delivering legal matters that is fast becoming a competency standard for all senior legal practitioners. In-house legal counsel need to incorporate the benefits of legal project management (LPM) in order to deliver consistent and effective legal outcomes and manage their expenditure on external legal counsel more effectively. The flip side is that law firms need to adopt LPM in order to stay competitive in today’s increasingly challenging legal environment.
