Legal Project Management

Legal Operations | Litigation Pricing | Litigation Knowledge Management | Litigation Legal Project Management

We are raising the industry standard for client service.

As the Litigation Legal Operations team’s client-facing arm, the Legal Project Management team has the goal of identifying and implementing techniques that raise the industry standard for client service. All Legal Project Management specialists are Certified Project Management Professionals (PMPs)—the gold standard of project management certification. They are embedded in our case teams and are given authority to ensure that cases stay on track, on budget, and on time.

Key services our project managers provide include:

  • Tracking spend vs. budget
  • Running team meetings and adhering to agendas
  • Assigning tasks to the appropriate team members and managing task lists
  • Forecasting costs and preventing or minimizing overruns
  • Fielding client requests and ensuring that they reach the responsible parties
  • Keeping clients informed, in real time, of case status, scope, and budget updates

Our Legal Project Management team serves as a resource for both our clients and our attorneys. They constantly monitor case progress, spending, and anticipated spending. Their extensive collaboration with our clients’ legal teams also ensures that attorneys are free to focus solely on substantive legal work, resulting in significant cost savings for clients.

Services our Legal Project Management team offers include:

BudgetMatters

BudgetMatters is a proprietary budget monitoring tool that allows our Legal Project Management team to quickly allocate hours, monitor actuals, and keep our matters on budget. More than merely a budget logging tool, BudgetMatters tracks spending in real time and on a granular scale—even capturing unfinalized expenses—to deliver our clients the most accurate budget reporting in the industry.

Preferred Vendor Arrangements and In-House Vendor Offerings

Our large caseload gives us the buying power to negotiate favorable rates with outside vendors, and we stringently evaluate our vendors’ work product, customer service, and pricing to ensure the highest quality and value for our clients. By design, utilization of preferred vendors for electronic discovery is minimal, since Fish has a robust, in-house e-discovery offering powered by Relativity®. Our certified eDiscovery specialists consult with our clients about their e-discovery needs and propose creative, efficient, and cost-effective solutions.
