    3Firms that do not have access to a wholly owned near shorefacility fi nd themselves in the unenviable position of either completing document review work in-house (with significant cost implications for their clients) or sending the work off shore (with data protection and control ramifications).

    i-lit Paralegals provides an on-demand, cost eff ective, legal process insourcing service that allows document review work to be completed under the supervision of solicitors, within their own offi ces.

  • Our client, a regional law fi rm, represented an employer in a claim brought by a previous employeefor wrongful dismissal. The case involved allegations of a complex fraud committed by the employee. Proving that the fraud had taken place was going to take upwards of 3 weeks of lawyer time to examine and analyse computer records and paperwork.

    The value of the claim was such that it was disproportionate for the lawyer in charge of the case to complete that work. Needing a cost eff ective alternative the fi rm turned to i-lit Paralegals to fi nd a suitable candidate who would quickly grasp the issues of the case and communicate their fi ndings in a clear, concise but comprehensive manner.

    We provided a selection of candidates for interview all of whom had been pre-interviewed and pre-qualifi ed as being suitable for this project. The successful candidate started work within 3 days of interview and successfully completed the work on time and within budget.

    Our client, a City law fi rm, required a team of 9 staff to complete a due diligence review of the contents ofapproximately 5000 leases prior to the acquisition of a portfolio of freehold properties.

    The leases (all of which were in hard copy) were divided amongst the team before being analysed for several key pieces of information. That information was collated on a series of spreadsheets prior to the spreadsheets being combined and a comprehensive picture of the current state of the leases was arrived at.

    The request for support was received on the last working day before the Christmas period. We successfully resourced the project with appropriately qualifi ed and experienced staff who were all ready to work on the fi rst working day of the New Year (a turnaround of 3 working days).

    Our client, an international law fi rm, was conducting a piece of litigation on behalf of a global bank. The e-disclosure process required that approximately 220,000 documents were reviewed and marked up for relevancy to the litigation on a hosted electronic document review platform. Initially we provided 20 pre-qualifi ed staff for interview (all of whom had previous experience of the document review platform and large scale review exercises) for interview in order to fi ll a total of 10 available roles.

    On meeting with the candidates our client elected to increase the size of the team to 15 in order to eff ectively utilise the resource available to them (the 5 not off ered work were kept on a reserve list in order provide a contingency should members of the core team become ill or decide to hand in their notice).

    i-lit Paralegals arranged for each of the successful candidates to have appropriate computer hardware supplied to them at the clients offi ces and the work was completed on time and within budget. Staff from that project have subsequently been recalled to the clients offi ces in order to complete a more detailed analysis of certain aspects of the case.

    Our client, an international law fi rm, had been engaged by a company to complete an internalreview of practices to ensure compliance with various international jurisdiction regulations.

    Part of that process involved the review of a large volume of documentation. i-lit Paralegals provideda team of 5 staff who were appropriately qualifi ed to make decisions on the contents of variousdiff erent types of documents.

    The review looked at a total of 71,000 documents and was charged using the per document pricing model.
