to drive your law firm forward

February 13, 2015 at 10:38 am Leave a comment

I’m always reminding lawyers that they’re in the knowledge business – they sell solutions to clients based on their knowledge. Anyone can look up the law, but experienced lawyers know what to do with the information they receive.

If law firms are going to survive the current perfect storm of pressures, they need to look to their knowledge systems for better ways of working.

5 ideas to improve your knowledge systems when you are new to KM:

  1. Learn about Knowledge Management in Law firms so you don’t get hoodwinked into buying stuff you don’t need.
  2. Identify a senior Knowledge team to research what would suit your firm.
  3. Start with a fast track mini strategy (see my textbook for Law Society and recent article for them).
  4. Be clear about your budget.
  5. Get help if it is taking up too much of your time – it’s often cheaper than wasting your own valuable chargeable time!
