Legal Project Management Audits
Reviewing existing project management methods and approaches can often quickly highlight where project management improvements can be made.
The audit is conducted via a series of structured interviews with key stakeholders, appropriate financial analysis, review of existing processes (if available) and a survey of partners or key stakeholders. The key deliverable is a series of recommendations focused on opportunities to a) improve project management outcomes in the short-term and b) improve the overall project management capability of the firm in the medium-term.

Project Management approaches can vary by client, practice area and even by client team or individual partner.
We work with practice groups and client teams to determine and document project management approaches appropriate to the group. The strategy covers the appropriate adoption of project management for the respective groups, recommended resourcing approach, and, high level benefits case to capture the desired fee and associated profit whilst enhancing overall client satisfaction.
