How does LPM work specifically? For Itkowitz PLLC, Legal Project Management is a unique, systematic, and stimulating approach to practicing law that stresses heightened attention to the following:
We seek to attain a deep understanding of your business model and your legal matter.
We constantly seek to clarify your goals for the engagement, even as they evolve. We document and circulate those goals in a project charter.
Every significant project needs a Project Charter. And your litigation is a significant project. Your case is of vital importance to you, you are spending a lot of money on it, it is complex, and there are many people involved both on the client side and on the firm side. Therefore, your case deserves a Project Charter to keep the lawyer-client project team focused on success. At Itkowitz PLLC the Project Charter is expressed through a series of “Legal Project Management Letters”.
We communicate with you frequently and preemptively, in a variety of ways, and with absolute clarity.
Scheduling and management of deadlines is one of the most difficult things we do as lawyers.
We provide you with realistic cost estimates and discounted and capped fees, if appropriate.
Around here – we think. That is the core of what we do.
We help you to identify, assess, and prioritize risks in your case, and then coordinate resources to minimize and monitor the probability and/or impact of bad events.
