Law Firm PM Watch: Lisa Damon of Seyfarth Shaw Profiled in ABA's Legal Rebels Column

| Comments | No TrackBacks
As one of the leaders in applying to process improvement and project management to legal work, Seyfarth Shaw has appeared on this blog many times (see the "related posts" section, below). Once again the firm is receiving media attention for its Seyfarth Lean program, which I've covered before. In this month's "Legal Rebels" column, the ABA profiles Lisa J. Damon, a member of Seyfarth Shaw's executive committee. 

The article highlights her role in promoting the Seyfarth Lean model, a version of Lean Six Sigma tailored for legal work, as well as the firms shift from hourly billing to alternative fee arrangements, and the abandonment of lock-step pay for associates. In the video interview that accompanies the article, Ms Damon discusses how these trends are helping to make law firms become business partners with their clients. She also talks about the move towards the unbundling of legal services and the increased need for multiple law firms to collaborate together on matters.
