Episode 127: The Role of a Legal Project Manager
Legal project managers are delivery specialists - they sit at the cross-roads between the client, the legal team, and other support functions (such as marketing, finance and pricing, L&D and IT). Their role is to help ensure that legal services are delivered in a way which meets (and preferably exceeds!) the client's cost, time and quality expectations – all the while enabling a law firm's/legal department’s commercial objectives, driving technology-enabled transformation, and maintaining the mental well-being of its lawyers. Legal project managers have a lot on their plate - it's a good thing that they're organised!
In this podcast, Peter Dombkins, Director, NewLaw, PwC Australia discussed how legal project managers make all the pieces fit together, with these specialists:
- Linda-Rose Daya, Head of Legal Project Management and Design, Gilbert + Tobin
- Liz Fernando, Head of Legal Project Management, Allens
- Joanne Rees, CEO, AllyGroup
- Kerryn Underwood, Head of Legal Project Management, King & Wood Mallesons
