About Ron Friedmann. Prism Legal is Ron Friedmann‘s professional web site. I am a non-practicing lawyer at the intersection of law practice, business management, technology, and alternative legal services delivery. For almost three decades I have worked with lawyers, law firms, law departments, and legal market providers to improve law practice efficiency and law firm business operations.
Thought Leadership. My articles and presentations cover topics such as large law firm business models, legal project management (LPM), legal process outsourcing (LPO), business process outsourcing (BPO), legal technology, knowledge management (KM), e-discovery (EDD), and artificial intelligence. My blog, Strategic Legal Technology, covers similar topics. My blog was honored in the November 2016 ABA Journal list, Annual Blawg 100. I have received this honor in prior years as well.
Speaking. If you are looking for a speaker, I’ve spoken to many different legal audiences, from partnership retreats to conferences large and small.
DoLessLaw. In 2013, I started developing the theme of “Do Less Law” (#DoLessLaw). My hypothesis is that the best way to control legal spend and create better value for clients is simply to do less. By that, I mean prevention, better risk-adjusted scoping, and a focus on improving practice efficiency. You can see my six-minutes ReInvent Law talk of February 2014 here.
