Meeting the Demands of Foreign Language Document Reviews

Client Challenge

A global law firm representing international clients required a partner who could provide contract attorneys proficient in numerous languages for a variety of document review projects taking place throughout the United States. The law firm sought a US-based, national resource with recruiting offices and document review centers in markets across the country, to act as their single point of contact to source and qualify document review attorneys fluent in a variety of languages. Further, the law firm required the contract attorneys be located in markets from coast-to-coast, working in facilities provided by the legal staffing and document review partner.
