Client: AmLaw 100 Firm
Practice Area: Complex Bankruptcy Dispute
Location: San Francisco, CA
Solutions: Document Review Team
Impact: Court-mandated, near impossible deadline for review, redaction and production of documents
Advanced Discovery was engaged by a top law firm to assist in a document review and production involving a substantial number of documents that required numerous redactions and a high degree of scrutiny by the review team. The client indicated the deadline for the project would be tight – only 12 days to complete the review and produce all of the documents. However, the very next day, a Friday, the judge surprised counsel by ordering them to produce all documents by midnight the following Tuesday, giving the client 4 days to complete the review, the redaction and the production.
Rallying a top-notch review team on shockingly short notice, Advanced Discovery worked day and night over the weekend to both review documents for responsiveness, and redact confidential and privileged information. Requiring all hands on deck, the entire review team completed the review and redaction portion on time and on budget.
Advanced Discovery was able to successfully meet the seemingly impossible court-ordered deadline without compromising the caliber of the review and processing, to the great relief and delight of the client.
