085: Kurt Obermeyer discusses Law Practice Management

Kurt ObermeyerKurt Obermeyer is the president and CEO of Legal Management Solutions Inc. a firm that provides outsourced upper level CFO/COO services for law firms. Mr Obermeyer has over 18 years of operations and finance experience for professional service firms. He has held both COO and CFO positions for regional and national law firms with up to 200 attorneys. However, Mr. Obermeyer saw a need for upper level assistance at the smaller law firms where the complexities of running the practice were just as prevalent but time and cash flow was limited for the partners to invest in that administrative overhead.  LMS is a product of that realization. Mr. Obermeyer is also an Executive Committee member and Vice Chair for the State Bar of California’s Law Practice Management and Technology Section.
