Lawson Lundell’s Knowledge Management Group Profiled in Knowledge Management for Lawyers


Lawson Lundell was recently featured in Patrick DiDomenico’s Knowledge Management for Lawyers In this book, published by the American Bar Association, DiDomenico surveys knowledge management best practices using case studies to illustrate strategies and approaches.  Commenting on Lawson Lundell, he notes that the firm has “embraced the principles and ideas of knowledge management and benefited greatly from them.” In particular, DiDomenico calls attention to the fact that the Knowledge Management group, under Euan Sinclair’s direction, “smartly leverages employees in other groups to participate in knowledge management projects and activities.” This collaboration between groups ranging from Information Resources, to Information Technology to Business Development and Marketing, maximizes resources and efficiencies while also serving as a way to break down silos between departments and to enhance the sharing of knowledge.  In the book, Sinclair describes his role as follows: “working proactively with practice groups to identify the areas where the scarce KM resources can be applied to best effect.”
