Elegrity and Steptoe & Johnson PLLC Co-Present at the 17th Annual Thomson Reuters Law Firm Leadership Forum in San Francisco, California
On Friday, November 16 from 8am-9am, I have the pleasure of co-presenting with Mr. Richard J. Mackessy, Chief Financial Officer of Steptoe & Johnson PLLC, on the preeminent subject of ensuring law firms have a sustainable business model. The presentation will be given at the 17th Annual Thomson Reuters Law Firm Leadership forum being held November 15-November 16 at the St. Regis hotel in San Francisco.
Many times in the last several years in this blog, e-books, whitepapers and webinars, I have discussed the key threats law firms face in the new, ever-changed global economy.
The good news is - law firms globally have more than come to terms with the impacts and need for change. The bad news is - confusion abounds when it comes to when and how to apply the right LPM disciplines to achieve needed results.
The 'LPM' acronym alone is confusing - because it stands for many different things:
- Legal Process Management (the 'Legal' version of the universal Business Process Management discipline).
- Legal Project Management (the 'Legal' version of the universal project management discipline)
- Legal Practice Management - the management of legal services and product offerings through the application of Legal Process Management, Legal Project Management and other related disciplines.
- Legal Profitability Management - the management of overall law firm profitability through the application of Legal Process Management (law firm BPM), Legal Project Management, Risk Management, etc.
Friday, Mr. Mackessy and I will work hard to replace confusion with knowledge and empowerment for change by providing real-world examples of the practical applications of Legal Process Management and Legal Project Management.
