Taking Lessons from SeyfarthLean

Posted by ilta on 13th August 2015

Nearly 10 years ago, Seyfarth Shaw blazed a trail as the first major law firm to apply Six Sigma and Lean process improvement methodologies to better serve the needs of their clients.

Spurred by overwhelming demand from their clients, Seyfarth is again breaking new ground with the formation of SeyfarthLean Consulting, a dedicated team of 30 technologists, legal project managers, data analytics specialists and process improvement professionals who work with clients and law firm partners to improve the delivery of legal services.
