eDiscovery Competition Review
A mid-tiered Dublin based law firm required a team of specialist lawyers to carry out a Competition related discovery review process. The firm’s client, a large global organisation, faced internal pressure to ensure its document processing costs were kept to a minimum. We were given a minimum notice period of just one week to put a large team together for the purposes of the review. The challenges faced by the client included but were not limited to the following:
In the embryonic stages of the review process, JHI assisted in the provision of overflow support for this ever-evolving process. Our role in the process quickly escalated with the unexpected and sizeable input of additional, unforeseen reviewable documentation. Ultimately, JHI was tasked with providing a fully managed and coordinated review team in a bid to reduce the client’s document processing spend. Our managed process ensured key deliverables to include on-time deadline delivery and crucial review quality and efficiency monitoring.
Internal Compliance Review Process
Our client, a leading Irish lending institution, required our assistance to staff, manage and coordinate an internal compliance review. The bank’s internal legal team had become strained as a result of focusing on document heavy review work, which was distracting them from other core competencies and high level legal work. This particular client partnered with JHI in order to remove the strain of this document heavy work from internal resources allowing same to re-align their energies towards higher value work product.
We provided a large team of experienced lawyers for a period of 3 months who all worked on-site at the client’s premises. We appointed an experienced document review lawyer who acted as the project coordinator for the review team. Our team, working in tandem and under the supervision of the Bank’s General Counsel, were instructed to manage and complete their tasks during peak times in order to adhere, stringently, to the parameters of the client’s expectations and requirements.
JHI’s thorough analysis of the client’s requirements and expectations in advance of the commencement of the review process enabled us to provide best in class managed teams to combat this large scale review process whilst quickly integrating with the bank’s internal legal team to drive efficiency.
