News: CLOC launches LPM webinar series

LegalShift leads and participates in the Corporate Legal Operations Consortium Legal Project Management Initiative

March 3, 2019 | published by Aileen R. Leventon

After many years of attention to LPM in law firms, CLOC determined to bring the discipline of project management to corporate legal operations professionals by launching an initiative in 2017. Significant valuable materials were developed and appear on the CLOC website at cloc.org.

The CLOC LPM framework applies to matters handled exclusively by in-house counsel, internal legal operations projects, matters handled exclusively by outside counsel, and projects where in-house counsel collaborate with law firms and other external service providers and emphasizes communication and adding value.

Under the leadership of Aileen Leventon (Edge International) and David Rueff (BakerDonelson) participants in the CLOC LPM Initiative and CLOC members have created a 5-part webinar series starting on March 8, 2019 that provides practical tools that CLOC members can use immediately.

We are honored to have had the pleasure of working with nearly 30 members of the legal ecosystem who participated in the creation of this initiative led by: Larry Bridgesmith (Legal Alignment), Patrick Ellis (General Motors), Aileen Leventon (Edge International), Pratik Patel (Elevate), Scott Rosenberg (LegalShift),and David Rueff (Baker Donelson).
