Seyfarth Shaw — SeyfarthLean (2012)

Seyfarth Shaw was selected for its SeyfarthLean program.  Well before the fall of the financial markets, Seyfarth leadership anticipated the need for better ways for a law firm to meet its clients’ rapidly evolving needs for value, efficiency and continued high quality of legal services. Based on that simple goal, we have become the only large law firm to build a distinctive client service model – called SeyfarthLean – that combines the core principles of Lean Six Sigma with robust technology, knowledge management, process management techniques, alternative fee structures and practical tools. The broad, systemic use of such a model across multiple practice areas is unique to the legal profession and reflects a fundamentally different way of thinking about how to deliver legal services.
