SECOND REQUEST CASE STUDY
The stakes were high when a Second Request required Hire Counsel to procure staff, technology and infrastructure in a single market within a week. 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 1 12,000 square foot review center, equipped it with state-ofthe 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.
