CHICAGO (August 14, 2012) — Leading law firm Seyfarth Shaw LLP has received a 2012 InnovAction Award from the College of Law Practice Management for its SeyfarthLean client service model.

In their eighth year, the InnovAction Awards recognize outstanding innovation in the delivery of legal services from around the globe.

“We are proud and honored to be recognized for our continued leadership in innovation,” said J. Stephen Poor, Seyfarth’s chairman and managing partner. “As SeyfarthLean evolves, we look forward to continuing to provide our clients with the types of value and innovative solutions they have come to expect from us.”

Seyfarth was recognized by the College as the only law firm to build a distinctive client service model - SeyfarthLean - that combines the principles of Lean Six Sigma with robust technology, knowledge management, process management techniques, alternative fee structures and practical tools.

A leader in value and innovation, this is the latest such accolade for Seyfarth. The firm was recently recognized as an innovation standout by BTI Consulting Group. Earlier this summer, Seyfarth and its client Rockwell Collins were honored as 2012 “Value Champions” by the Association for Corporate Counsel for their efforts to reengineer how outside counsel are selected, engaged, managed and evaluated, while employing "Lean Six Sigma" to drive efficiency in-house.
