Professional Insights

Successful Attorneys Have Structured New Business Development Strategies

Successful lawyers have an unwavering commitment to their new business development process. Their strategies are structured, scheduled, and focused.

Legal Project Management is Critical to Client Satisfaction

Legal project management is being adopted by savvy lawyers in response to the “new normal” service delivery demanded by clients: more transparency, predictable legal costs, and more efficiency and value from lawyers.

Time Management is Critical for Legal Career Success

Good time management skills are essential to being a successful lawyer. Lawyers who are organized and manage their time well tend to think more clearly, work more productively, and make a better impression on colleagues and clients.
