Improving Law Practice Efficiency + Law Firm Business Operations

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.

ABA_blawg_100_2016Thought 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. Blawg 100 Hall of Fame My blog was honored in the November 2017 ABA Journal list, Web 100: Best law blogs. I have received this honor in prior years as well. Also in November 2017, the ABA Journal, honored my blog by including it in the Blawg 100 Hall of Fame. (“Since 2012, the ABA Journal has maintained the Blawg 100 Hall of Fame to note consistently outstanding law blogs. The list of best blogs has grown to 55, with five new additions for 2017.)

DoLessLaw. In 2013, I started developing the theme of “Do Less Law” (#DoLessLaw), live link to Tweets with this hashtag). My hypothesis is that the best way to control legal spend and create better value for clients is simply to do less. That means 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. Or read DoLessLaw blog posts.
