Hire Counsel received a call from an Am Law 100 firm the Sunday before Thanksgiving informing Hire Counsel that they would need 60 attorneys, office space and computers for a document review that was to commence the Monday after Thanksgiving. The document review was for a copyright infringement matter that was expected to last approximately 4 months.
During a document review process, our client asked their outside counsel located in a major metropolitan area to house 15 Hire Counsel contract attorneys at their offices. The cost for conducting the review in this major market would have been substantially more than the client wanted to pay. Our client’s co-counsel, located in Las Vegas, agreed to supervise the project, but did not have space to house the document review.
A global law firm representing international clients required contract attorneys proficient in numerous languages for document review projects taking place throughout the United States. The law firm sought a US-based, national, unified resource with offices in markets across the country to act as their single point of contact to source, identify and qualify multi-lingual contract attorneys. Further, the law firm required that the contract attorneys be located in local markets around the US, working from facilities provided by the review management provider.

Our client, a large international law firm, had engaged with a large financial institution to defend its large-scale portfolio of lawsuits relating to mortgage modifications and foreclosures. The financial institution encouraged our client to charge a flat fee for each claim, and because of this arrangement, our client needed a solution for managing the voluminous portfolio work without the use of associates.
Our client, a large healthcare organization who was going through a government audit and investigation, was in need of an interim General Counsel. The client needed someone right away and was not able to find a full-time hire in such a short time frame. Also, the location of this healthcare organization was not in a very large legal market so it was difficult to find candidates with the healthcare and compliance experience they were looking for. They were looking for a candidate with strong experience with hospital/physician contracting including employment and practice acquisition as well as experience in Healthcare Fraud and Abuse laws including Anti-kickback and Stark Laws.
