When you picture the future of law, Kim Craig is in the corner of the image, with a big smile on her face. We all revere the practice of law; but, it needs to change. Kim is shaking and re-making the business of law and the professionals who practice it. As managing director of Lean Solutions and SeyfarthLean, Kim leads legal project managers and process improvement consultants that all of us line up to learn from. While the rest of us are asking “how do we do that?” and “is there some way to translate that to practice?,” Kim is all about answers and understands that legal practice must be both a science and an art.
