Toronto, January 20, 2011 — Business Law Group Partner Richard Higa was a panellist in yesterday’s Project Management for Lawyers 2011 program, organized by the Practising Law Institute in New York City. The seminar taught lawyers and legal professionals how to apply project management principles to client service and their own practices.

Mr. Higa shared his expertise as a member of the panel "Success Stories in Legal Project Management" and "Managing the Implementation of Project Management in Your Organization" along with lawyers from New York, Chicago and Philadelphia. He was one of just two Canadian lawyers who presented during the day-long program. Mr. Higa’s participation in the seminar confidently reaffirms McCarthy Tétrault’s leadership in the area of project management, an area of expertise increasingly demanded by the firm’s diverse range of clients.

The Project Management for Lawyers 2011 program was hosted from New York, groupcast to four other locations in the United States, and also available by webcast. More than 300 lawyers and legal professionals from across North America participated in the seminar.
