I recently recommended the College of Law Practice Management’s InnovAction publication (PDF). In addition to several feature articles about innovation, there are several informative short case studies. 

I contributed case studies of innovation at Bryan Cave and Morrison Foerster. John Alber of Bryan Cave provided the information for that firm’s innovative use of business intelligence software. Oz Benamram of MoFo co-authored the case study on his firm’s creation of the AnswerBase knowledge management system. These two are available at prismlegal.com here (HTML).

Other case studies include:
– Blank Rome: mentoring and interactive training
– Bowman & Brooke: mobile technology trial kits
– Law Chambers of Nicholas Critelli: space design customized to functional needs
– DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary: Venture Pipeline, to help start-up companies
– Halleland Lewis Nilan & Johnson: cultural re-alignment to foster team work
– Holland & Hart: innovative community service that also builds teams
– Pinsent Masons: OutLaw.com, to help start-up businesses
– Simpson Grierson: marketing campaign that changed perception of the firm
– Sughrue Mion: mock trials in Asia help establish its market position
– Wragge & Co: fee prediction and transaction management system
