3 Reasons Why You Should Consider Technology and Staffing Separately When Outsourcing eDiscovery Services

Working with a single, bundled service provider to supply both staffing and technology for your document review comes with the risk they will excel in one area more than another. Alternatively, when you work with  several suppliers that each deliver on their core competency your review is inherently protected with checks and balances. Hire Counsel works rigorously with clients to understand their discovery needs, so we can optimize document review efficiencies that will increase the output of the review team and reduce the risk to our clients. We develop solutions that meet – and often exceed – our clients desired outcomes.

Our High-Level Approach to Managing a Second Request

The stakes were high when a Second Request required Hire Counsel to procure staff, technology and infrastructure in a single market within a week.

Hire Counsel Solution. We tapped our national database of 50,000 legal professionals to source a candidate pool of 1,500 experienced document reviewers. We employed more than 300 legal professionals, all of whom were prepared for work on time and within the client’s budget. Simultaneously, Hire Counsel acquired a 12,000 square foot review center, equipped it with state-of the art technology and software, and ensured that all security measures were in place. We stocked the office with supplies and amenities to make it a comfortable working environment for the review staff. The review center was open 7 days/week from 6am to midnight for several months to accommodate the large number of document reviewers.
