Karen Painter Randall, co-chair of Connell Foley’s Cyber Security & Data Privacy and Professional Liability Groups, will moderate a session on “Legal Project Management: A Simple Concept Based on Common Sense” at the National Legal Malpractice Conference, to be presented by the American Bar Association on April 27-28, 2016 in New Orleans, LA. This breakout session will focus on the client’s demand for predictability in legal expense, consistency in work product, and a lawyer who thinks about legal problems as business problems. Legal Project Management (LPM) applies the concepts of project management to the control and management of legal cases or matters. Practitioners apply LPM to the mechanics and business of providing legal services rather than to the substantive legal work itself. This presentation will focus on how LPM can help lawyers, clients, and insurance carriers obtain litigation success, challenging participants to build upon real world examples while exploring the potential impact of disciplined scoping and planning of litigation assignments.
