The legal market is contracting – the fight for market share is on. Cutting rates and fixed fees may not be enough. Innovation in law practice can help win new business. If you have innovated, help earn new business with recognition for your inspiration and hard work. 

The College of Law Practice Management (I am a trustee) sponsors the InnovAction Award. InnovAction honors innovation in law practice management. Law firms, law departments, and other legal service providers (but not vendors) can apply. Innovation can range from creative office design, to technology, to a marketing campaign. For the first time, this year applicants can win Honorable Mention.

Review the InnovAction web site and consider submitting an application. For more information:
