The time has come for in-house counsel to stop accepting excuses and instead start demanding that their outside counsel develop an effective program for Legal Practice Management (LPM). In LPM, outside counsel collaborates with in-house counsel to manage the scope, budget and schedule of legal work. This collaborative process allows for completion of legal work in a more efficient and predictable manner. LPM has many benefits for in-house counsel, including gaining more control over their legal budgets and receiving more information about how outside counsel is working toward a favorable outcome.
