We're Different

Our firm is different than other consulting firms that advise law firms on practice management and knowledge strategy. Here's why:


We take a top-down approach

The project must tie to a firm strategy, such as increasing efficiency, improving profits or reducing risk.


We speak the managing partner's language

As a partner with management responsibility for decades at a preeminent New York law firm, Jack Bostelman, our president, understands the concerns of managing partners.


We understand each law firm is different

Each law firm has its own combination of size, practice, geography, culture, business model and other attributes. We propose customized solutions only after considering the individual situation of the firm.


We understand practicing lawyers

As a practicing securities lawyer for 30 years, our president knows the needs of the busy lawyers who rely on the firm's organization, workflow processes and knowledge strategy systems.


We start with people and process

Practice management is about how people work together, including how they share knowledge. Technology has its place, but cultural and process change must be considered first.


We know the real world

Practice management systems and procedures cannot be artificial. They must integrate with the way lawyers actually practice and take into account the "lawyer personality."
