GLS Project Manager™
World class management for your legal project
Project management is not “lawyering” but law firms charge you as though it is.
Related challenges include:
- project management tasks massively impact the burn rate of external legal budgets
- project management is overwhelmingly a non-strategic use of valuable internal legal resources
- it is not always feasible to allocate internal resources to project management tasks
- the “legal” overtures of a project may intimidate an internally allocated project manager that does not have a law background
- most of your time seems to be taken up by instructing, corresponding with, chasing and responding to stakeholders and the dozens of service providers that are “assisting” on the project
- managing the day to day aspects of a project is extremely time intensive
- law firm based project management is inherently at risk from time-based billing practices
- the opportunity cost of using your internal lawyer for project management is extremely high
PM done well is the most reliable means of delivering safely, on-time and on-budget. Lawyers are good at project management.
Wouldn’t it be great to be able access a project manager without having to pay high private practice or internal opportunity costs?
The GLS Solution
GLS Project Manger™ allows you to release the latent inefficiencies associated with traditional legal project management that use lawyers (internal or external) to carry out project management.
GLS Project Manager™ provides you with a senior lawyer to assist in the running of your transaction. This lawyer comes without the price tag of an external legal resource or the opportunity cost of using your own internal lawyer.
GLS Project Manager™ helps you manage your valuable legal resources (people/budget) by giving you world class legal competency, at a fraction of the cost.
GLS Project Manager™ allows you to split project related tasks into “Project Management” and “Legal” so that they are carried out from the correct and appropriate cost base.
By resourcing project dependencies by reference to the skillsets actually required, you are freed to generate significant time, cost and quality efficiencies.
Lawyering, when needed, can be limited to advising on high-value and strategic points (identified by your project manager), whilst project management is done qualitatively and cost efficiently.
GLS Project Manager™ will take care of all “management” aspects required to get the project safely “over the line” on time and on budget whilst efficiently navigating the overall legal context.
The project manager will prepare and deliver status reports and updates to you and your board as often or as little as you like.
