What's your role in the legal industry (e.g. lawyer, student, entrepreneur) or beyond?

Before I joined Duff & Phelps in late 2013, I served as Chief Counsel, Outside Counsel Relations, for a Detroit-based Fortune 500 company. While there, I had overall responsibility for managing the company's expansive network of outside counsel. The strategies I conceived and executed saved the company tens of millions of dollars in external legal fees.

Please describe your interest in legal technology and/or innovation.

I have expertise in the field of law practice management, alternative fee arrangements, data analytics, and performance metrics. I now lead a team dedicated to helping corporate legal departments reduce costs, enhance efficiency, and improve operations. I also offer my expertise to law firms seeking to develop competitive pricing strategies, implement sound project management techniques, and develop stronger client relationships.

What topics would you like our group to discuss?

Data. This changes everything.


I'm an attorney with more than 20 years experience in the legal industry - both in law firm and in-house environments. I'm currently a Director in the Legal Management Consulting practice of Duff & Phelps.

What James P. is saying about this Meetup Group
