New ABA book helps lawyers develop project management skills

By John Glynn

CHICAGO, Nov. 1, 2013 — Legal clients are responding to today’s unprecedented financial pressures by demanding better predictability, cost-effectiveness and communication from their outside legal providers. They give their business to those who can manage legal work efficiently — and take it away from those who can’t or won’t.

“Legal Project Management in One Hour for Lawyers” provides lawyers with practical skills and methods for improving efficiency, keeping budgets under control, building strong working relationships with clients and maximizing profitability. In one hour, this book will help lawyers:

  • Understand the features and benefits of legal project management, or LPM.
  • Negotiate project scope and budgets with clients.
  • Improve communication with internal team members and external clients.
  • Keep legal work on schedule, on task and on budget.
  • Improve business development success and enhance client trust.

“Legal Project Management in One Hour for Lawyers” was written by Pamela H. Woldow and Douglas B. Richardson, both of the global legal consulting firm Edge International in Savannah, Ga.
