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.

Contract Professionals 101: Effective guidance for building effective document review teams

Faced with a looming deadline to review and produce massive discovery, and with no prior experience working with contract attorneys, the client was looking to partner with a review management provider who had the experience to counsel them on the process end to end. They needed a team that could educate first-time users to work effectively with contract employees – a team that would be present throughout the document review project to insure their review was conducted on time, on budget, with superior legal staffing.

On Demand Review Management

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.

Being There 24/7/365 – When you Need It, We Build It

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.
