Staffing

The LitSmart team currently consists of 29 of the brightest legal and technical minds in the e-discovery industry. It is supported by over 50 licensed, fully vetted contract attorneys and several dozen highly experienced contract paralegals. The LitSmart team is ready to staff a wide range of projects.

Traditional Document Review for Litigation

Traditional Document Review for Litigation

Our competitively-priced contract attorneys are managed by LitSmart attorneys and paralegals who average more than 15 years of experience in litigation and e-discovery. They work closely with clients to develop detailed review protocols, conduct quality control review and create privilege logs. Because of our broad experience, clients often ask our review managers to take the lead on complex privilege and confidentiality strategies. Several of our review managers have also testified successfully on the validity of redactions and privilege decisions.

Non-Traditional Document Review — Beyond Litigation

Non-Traditional Document Review — Beyond Litigation

Non-traditional document review is used for matters involving cybersecurity, mergers and acquisitions, due diligence and more. Our review teams have successfully handled hundreds of non-traditional document reviews for grand jury subpoenas, internal investigations and government inquiries. They frequently act as the designated review team for corporate counsel or other law firms. Contract review teams are sometimes overlooked for non-traditional review. But our clients have utilized LitSmart's services time and again.

Data Summary and Entry

Data entry projects require great attention to detail. But they should also involve a lower hourly rate than contract attorneys. We staff such projects with contract paralegals, managed by attorneys onsite at our secure Document Review Center. We have assisted in more than a dozen such projects. In one data privacy matter, we transcribed more than 200,000 lines of sensitive personally identifiable information. As part of a complex employment dispute, we annotated thousands of sign-in sheet entries. And as part of a government investigation, we analyzed millions of phone records for evidence of potential criminal activity.

 

Cite Checking for Formatting, Case Law for Briefs and Articles

Our team is capable of assisting with cite checking. Our service includes formatting for compliance with local court rules and the Blue Book, and ensuring cases are properly Shepardized. We use an internal ticketing system for cite-check requests. This guarantees projects are addressed and completed on time. All members of the cite-check team have received extensive training to fulfill the firm’s rigorous qualification requirements.

Secondment by LitSmart Attorneys, Paralegals or Project Managers

We also offer LitSmart team members to serve in the role of a secondee. Based on the client’s needs, an attorney, paralegal or project manager can assist onsite for several days a week or a few times a month. They can handle a variety of projects such as information governance and developing data retention/disposition policies, implementing and tracking legal holds, managing internal investigations, collecting both structured and unstructured data and conducting custodian interviews. Secondment is offered as part of the Discovery Counsel role, or can be provided for a fixed fee.
