Legal Project Management (LPM) Network
The Legal Project Management (LPM) Network brings together practitioners from across industry to work together to define best practice.
Backed by the Chartered Body for Project Management, the Association for Project Management, the LPM Network is driving the LPM conversation forward at pace.
What's the Need for an LPM Network?
The UK legal sector grew at the “phenomenal” rate of 8% last year and is worth almost £26bn, according to research
commissioned by the Law Society.
This headline masks the changing face of legal services and the demand for more efficient ways of working. New market entrants, demands from project management savvy clients and the shift to alternative fee arrangements, in particular fixed fees, all necessitate change in the industry. Those who embrace this change will succeed, whereas firms that fail to equip themselves for the challenge will undoubtedly suffer.
Legal Project Management is rapidly gaining attention from across the industry, yet there is limited guidance or best practice to drive consistent adoption across firms and clients.
