Legal Project Management: what do clients really expect?

Our Legal Project Management (LPM) course helps lawyers apply best practice principles of project management to the effective delivery of legal services. This new course has been developed and delivered in conjunction with OMC Partners, specialists in legal operational efficiency, and is a must for all those grappling with the challenges of meeting client expectations and winning more work.

Why LPM?

In an era where margins are continually under pressure, and clients demand increasingly sophisticated service levels and greater cost certainty, strong project management skills are essential for any modern lawyer. Law firms have much to learn from the likes of the Big 4 accounting firms, leading consultants such as McKinsey and Accenture, and other professionals who have successfully applied project management approaches to great effect for decades.

LPM does more than just help lawyers to manage their work productively and profitably. LPM ensures they understand and meet their clients’ objectives, deliver engagements on time and to budget, and communicate the value of the services provided. Done well, clients will keep coming back for more!

Who is the course for?

This course helps lawyers from all disciplines deliver services using a consistent methodology that captures all the benefits of LPM Best Practice. There are 4 modules covering:

1. Understanding what your clients want

2. Planning work

3. Working the plan

4. Delivering value

Free Briefing sessions

To help lawyers and law firm managers understand exactly what this course entails and the business benefits to be derived, we are running several Legal Project Management Briefings throughout the UK over the coming weeks. To book a place, please contact
