100-Attorney Review Team Meets Aggressive Deadline Despite Challenging Requirements
Advanced Discovery was engaged by the corporate client to provide document collection, processing, hosting, review and production services for a large-scale and high-stakes second request antitrust investigation pertaining to a telecommunications merger. Working under a tight staffing and production deadline, Advanced Discovery immediately began collection and processing of the documents to be reviewed, and quickly staffed the project with an initial 75-member high-quality review team, who worked seamlessly in conjunction with two separate outside counsel law firms engaged by the client, to take on the voluminous review project. Due to the sheer volume of documents involved in second request matters, Advanced Discovery was asked to quickly put together another 25 attorneys to meet the stringent production demand. As a unified team, the nearly 100 reviewers worked deftly and deliberately to review the documents at issue quickly and meet the aggressive document production deadline.
Following Advanced Discovery’s successful production of documents at the conclusion of the two-month review, as well as an ensuing short break, the need for an additional quick-turnaround production required immediately bringing back 40 of the review attorneys. The additional review team worked seven straight days, often working 12 or more hours per day, to ensure that all deadlines were met on time or earlier, to the extreme satisfaction of both client and outside counsel.
