Trust The Process: How To Build And Manage Workflows In Law Firms

stopwatch-5646500_1280With the coming release of “Happy Gilmore 2” on Netflix, it’s important that we not forget the past — like what Happy Gilmore got into in the first movie: “doing the bull dance, feeling the flow, working it.”

But how can you get into a similar flow state as a lawyer — avoiding mistakes, working faster and smarter, and generally kicking ass?

Well, progress is made via process, and you need to deploy some workflows. So you’re probably wondering: why and how?

The best news is that we’ve got answers, because Joyce Brafford of ProfitSolv is back again on the Non-Eventcast — as co-host of this exceptional set of special episodes — to talk it all over.

This is the fifth episode in a monthly series with our partner, ProfitSolv.  This episode is sponsored by CosmoLex.

In this episode, we begin with our new segment, “Cryptid Corner,” in which we each discuss a cryptid of our choosing. In this edition, I go old school, and Joyce gets hyperlocal.

Then, we jump (like a pouncing yeti) into the project of describing project management in legal (12:57), before outlining the key components for building workflows (18:32) — the cornerstone of any effective process.

After that, I talk over the importance of adding followup architecture to workflows (35:15). Before finishing up, we cover how workflows and appropriate project management can be used to reduce risk in law firms (37:59).

If you’re feeling inefficient but don’t know why: It’s either because you don’t have processes or your processes are not tight enough.

In the legal industry, trust is not just a buzzword – it’s a necessity. Building and managing workflows in law firms requires a foundation of trust between team members, clients, and stakeholders.

To effectively build and manage workflows in law firms, it is crucial to establish clear communication channels and responsibilities among team members. This can help ensure that tasks are completed efficiently and accurately. Additionally, it is important to regularly review and update workflows to adapt to changes in the legal landscape and make improvements based on feedback.

Building trust in workflows also involves using technology to streamline processes and increase transparency. By implementing tools such as case management software and document automation, law firms can improve efficiency, reduce errors, and provide better service to clients.

Ultimately, trust in workflows comes down to fostering a culture of transparency, collaboration, and accountability within the firm. By focusing on building trust in workflows, law firms can increase productivity, strengthen relationships with clients, and ultimately achieve greater success in the legal industry. Trust the process and watch your firm thrive.
