The most effective way to change LPM behavior and build momentum within a firm is for motivated attorneys and staff to directly experience immediate benefits and then become internal champions who spread the word. The most efficient way for lawyers to experience those benefits is to work one-on-one with a legal project management expert who serves as a personal coach. Our standard program includes unlimited coaching for two to four months, built around a weekly phone call.
The precise approach is customized to each lawyer’s needs.
If a firm chooses to coach four or more lawyers at the same time, LegalBizDev will provide a monthly report to decision makers at no additional charge, summarizing what each lawyer has accomplished to date, what is planned for the future, and what the firm should do to assure sustainability.
For groups of six lawyers that participate in coaching at the same time, we also offer an option of coordinating activities by starting the program with a group workshop, presented as a two-hour webinar or video conference or a half-day meeting in your office.

“This coaching was far from a theoretical exercise… This was a discussion of specific matters that were before me, and how to approach them…[It] has been very beneficial to me in client management and in client development. I believe that it applies to all areas of law.” – Albert Dotson, Partner, Bilzin Sumberg
“This training forced me to think about administrative matters for my clients on a regular basis – things I have to do anyway – and focused my attention in a way that improved client service and financial results.”
– Michael Tuteur, Partner, Foley & Lardner
“Building awareness of the need for better project management is best achieved through coaching individual by individual. While that may seem less efficient with respect to time, it works much better than global education.” – Stacy D. Ballin, Partner, Squire Patton Boggs
“Legal project management has fundamentally changed the way I practice law.” – Judith Bevis Langevin, Principal, Gray Plant Mooty
