It’s a difficult world for law firms these days. Client demands, increased competition, and the distractions of technology can put pressure on any business. Law firms who try to respond with “traditional” firm management are perhaps more susceptible than any other business to falling victim to the chaos.

But fortunately, there’s a solution. And it’s found not in traditional law firm management methods, but in the practices of some of the world’s most efficient and forward-thinking manufacturing companies who learned–long ago–the power of lean methodologies and systems thinking. Far from a dry read, The Lean Law Firm is the first book published by the ABA to employ the graphic novel to teach business lessons. Follow the engaging story of lawyer Carson Wright, who suddenly finds himself responsible for saving a small law firm, as his mentor Guy Chapman imparts the lean techniques that transformed his factory from the brink of bankruptcy to new heights of profitability.

As you watch the The Lean Law Firm story unfold, you’ll see how your own firm is really just a system. You’ll get an immediately usable template for making that system lean and efficient. And, from your new understanding you’ll reap not only financial benefits, but a renewed enthusiasm for running your firm.
