Project Management - Clients Demand It

As corporate clients exerted ever-greater pressure for lower or more controlled costs, their law departments focused increasingly on pushing outside counsel (and their in-house counterparts) to apply to the use of legal service techniques developed in project management.

Application of project management tools to legal service should yield greater control over both costs and outcomes as the process becomes more and more methodical.
