ERM Legal Solutions is pleased to announce the general release of Lean4Legal PM®, a market leading legal project management solution for lawyers, law firms and corporate legal departments.
Large regional law firm Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP (www.nelsonmullins.com) has served as a co-development partner with ERM in bringing Lean4Legal PM® to market. Robert Brunson, a litigator in the firm’s Charleston, South Carolina office has been a legal project management specialist for over ten years. In response to client expectations, Robert has learned to manage complex litigation successfully for his corporate clients by providing efficiencies and price predictability for which competing law firms could only hope. After spending nearly 4 months piloting Lean4Legal PM®, Robert stated, “After using the more complex and confusing Microsoft Project tools, I find Lean4Legal PM® to be a great advance for lawyers who want to spend their time representing clients, not untangling software functionality. This system has the key functionality necessary to enable lawyers, even those without experience in formal project management techniques, to benefit from greater planning and control. It will enable project management to reach the masses in the legal profession, while still providing a very robust set of capabilities.”
Jason Epstein, a Nelson Mullins partner in the Nashville, Tennessee office, focuses his practice on corporate transactional work primarily involving technology and emerging business entities. He is a frequent writer and lecturer on the topics of technology and the practice of law. Epstein’s excitement about using Lean4Legal PM® in his transactional practice is based on the fact that no training or prior experience in project management methodologies is required to benefit from its use. “Like tax preparation software, which made it possible for the masses to prepare their taxes without learning tax codes, Lean4Legal PM® enables the lawyer to benefit from tried and true project management principles and disciplines without the need to learn project management. We don’t want to teach LPM to our lawyers.” Epstein continues, “In fact, Lean4Legal PM® is LPM without the LPM. Just by using the tool, you are doing LPM. Lean4Legal PM® requires little training. Most users will benefit from the technology with less than 30 minutes of orientation.”
