Who is K4L?

Helene Russell, The Knowledge Business

“Knowledge for Lawyers” is written by me, Helene Russell.

As knowledge intensive firms (KIFs), law firms can improve their efficiency and effectiveness considerably through strategic, proven Knowledge tools and techniques.

I focus on teaching law firms how they can improve their strategic KM plans alongside their business plans, rather than come in as a consultant and take over.

I write textbooks and offer training courses (in-house, open and online).

I also give away a lot of free tips and knowledge here on this blog and through my “busy person’s monthly round-up”.

Of course, if you want some help with implementing a project or writing your KM strategy, I won’t turn you away, just give me a ring or drop me a line and we can chat about your needs, but my primary goal is always to teach your firm to be self-sufficient.

Who am I?

I’m a UK solicitor/lawyer (now non-practising) and KM professional.

From my time practising law, my time in-house as a Knowledge Lawyer and my time working as an independent KMer, I understand lawyers and law firms and what KM tactics will actually work.

I am author of the Law Society’s “Knowledge Management Handbook“, published in 2012 and “Practical Projects in Legal KM“, published in 2015

I am also founder of Knowledge Network UK, the only knowledge-sharing and networking group for law firm KM professionals in UK.
