Welcome to LCM – UK’s leading para-Law Firm.
LCM stands for ‘Legal Case Management’. Its flexibility and broad scope of activity sets it apart from other legal service providers. Our purpose is to meet the demands of modern ‘savvy’ consumers – clients who understand the real costs and processes involved in a legal case, and aim to achieve optimal results at the best possible price.
LCM optimise legal services by combining regulated professional activity with unregulated legal support resources. At LCM, we work on the simple principle that 90% of legal work in most cases is all about the ‘administrative and mechanical processes’; and only 10% is actual (substantive) legal advice. So, by separating the two aspects, and letting our highly qualified lawyers focus only on the 10% advisory component, while managing the mechanics of your legal case through unregulated paralegals (at a much lower cost), you save significant amounts of money. At the same time, our case management service ensures your legal matter runs on time and on budget.
We can also combine our internal paralegal resources with external legal expertise of the highest calibre. We can guide you to the best legal experts that suit your requirements or work with experts of your choice.
Whether you are starting your legal case or have already appointed a lawyer, we can optimise your legal services by offering professional case management that delivers desired outcomes with optimised cost-effectiveness – guaranteed.
Our pricing policy is based on the share of savings we achieve for you, which means that you will always pay less for your legal requirements when using LCM.

What exactly is Legal Case Management?
Legal case management provides a single point of contact in your legal matter (your legal case manager), who organises all legal work in a manner that delivers an optimised result in terms of cost, time and outcome.
Using a Legal Case Manager means paying much less for your legal services, if compared to instructing a law firm directly.
How can Legal Case Management achieve optimised results for you?
Legal case management implements the operational principles of a para-law firm – distributing and coordinating your legal requirements in the most efficient manner among its selected team of legal professionals – depending on what your case requires. For example, document processing tasks are allocated to low-cost paralegals, drafting and advice is performed by solicitors, while opinion and advocacy is provided by barristers. In typical cases, Legal Case Managers allocate the bulk of the work to paralegals (up to 90%), resulting in substantial savings for clients – compared with those clients who choose to go to directly to solicitors instead.
What other benefits does legal case management offer you?
Your personal Legal Case Manager will ensure that all legal professionals working on your case are selected correctly, in order to put your interests before theirs. Far too often, when clients instruct a law firm, they are surprised by the high costs of legal services, especially when little progress is made on their legal case. That’s because the acting lawyers can put their interests first, and may take advantage of the client’s lack of understanding in a legal matter. A Legal Case Manager, on the other hand is always on the client’s side. It selects a team of legal representatives on the basis of proven professional track records, ensuring your legal experts deliver tangible results commensurate with the fees they charge.
Overall, approaching your legal matter through a Legal Case Manager ensures that you pay less for your legal services, while enjoying better outcomes, which are achieved more effectively over a shorter period of time.
Avoid the mistake of choosing and instructing legal experts without knowing how. It could end up costing more time and money, and create additional problems for you. Let your legal case be properly set up and managed by professionals who know the legal services industry.
