Partner, Duane Morris
Alex Geisler is a London-based litigation partner with Duane Morris. The roots of what would become his Lean Law Program go back to his early representations of auto manufacturers, a clientele known for its embrace of lean manufacturing principles.
As Alex worked more closely with these clients, he experimented with their approaches to process improvement and project management in a successful effort to continuously improve the legal product his clients, and virtually every other client, really wanted: an agreed upon outcome, on time and on budget.
He adapted these ideas along with insights from other industries, clients and his own experiences to complete the Lean Law Program.
You meet a firm and they pitch, but they don’t offer a system or a process. Law firms tell you what they do, but not how they do it. For me, there are three Rs which are Reliability, Recommendations and Risk. I give repeat business to firms which offer me proven reliability, in the sense of getting to the right outcome, within budget and on time. But also, the advice itself has to be business advice, which means I like recommendations and some assessment of risk.

About Lean Adviser Legal
Lean Adviser Legal offers a process management approach that increases safety, predictability and reliability. Each lesson is designed to help lawyers deliver better strategy, improve efficiency and enhance client communications.
The program begins with layout -- gathering the materials and instructions you need at the outset of any task or process.
Once you know where you’re going, you can take the steps to get there. Let Lean Adviser Legal show you how to take the fewest and most effective steps toward a leaner practice of law.
Assessment is the most critical component in project management theory. The ability to monitor and improve your process allows you to optimize the service you are delivering to clients.
At the end of every process or task is the beginning of another. Capturing learnings and putting process improvements to use are the key to ensuring that the end of one client engagement will be the beginning of another.
