We help clients achieve their legal and business objectives by combining deep matter expertise with a proactive and disciplined approach to financial management. The result is setting and meeting legal and financial expectations through proactive planning and communication.
We provide project management training to lawyers and professional staff, deploy professional project managers on matters, utilize systems and methods to track work against scope and budget, and leverage 10 years of historical matter data to anticipate the various financial and legal paths a matter may take.
Project Management at Fenwick begins with a conversation with the client about the scope and business impact of the matter. Our matter team then collaborates with our pricing team to develop a project budget based on comparable matters, taking into account the unique facts of the client’s matter. Our pricing team utilizes a database of thousands of task coded matters to build budgets based on our experience with similar matters.
Dedicated project managers then assist matter teams in tracking scope, reviewing budget to actuals, determining how changes in strategy or scope may impact overall budget, and assist in communicating those changes to clients. The matter team has access to financial reporting and task management tools to assist in managing to scope. We provide transparency to our clients on the progress of the matter and status of the budget.
