31 October 2019
Pinsent Masons has announced the launch of its client and legal project management division, which it says will help support delivery of matters on time and on budget. The division is led by UK-based Dee Tamlin, and comprises more than 20 project managers and staff. The firm says that while a number of law firms offer project management delivered by lawyers or dedicated professionals on major transactions, its CLPM division will do that in addition to embedding professionally-certified project managers directly in the client team on major projects, litigations and transactions, irrespective of whether Pinsent Masons is delivering legal advice on the matter.
The firm operates a number of businesses and technologies which complement legal resource. In 2013 the firm was in the vanguard of legal firms to offer contract legal resource through its Vario business, which has subsequently launched into Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore. Pinsent Masons is continuing to recruit in the UK, Asia Pacific and the Middle East while offering the service on a global basis. The firm has won project management mandates in the UK, mainland Europe and South Africa.
