DOWNLOAD THIS CASE STUDY
Our client, a Chicago-based litigation firm, was on a tight deadline and required temporary assistance to complete an extensive due diligence project. Our Solutions Practice Group (SPG) placed 12 contract attorneys on-site at the firm for a period of approximately four months to assist and complete the project.
The law firm was in the middle of bond holder litigation involving more than $2 billion in outstanding bonds. They were in need of additional resources to complete the analysis of documents quickly and efficiently. Documents to be analyzed included board minutes relating to transfer payments, budgets and prices.
The partner overseeing this litigation reached out to the SPG after learning of our services from another partner in the firm. We discussed the firm’s goals and ideal candidates to gain a solid understanding of the scope of the work to be performed and the candidate profile we needed to identify in a short period of time.
Within four hours of the firm’s initial call, the SPG was able to deliver a slate of potential candidates. The initial group of five contract attorneys started two days later. Due to the size of the case, the firm requested additional support, and the SPG placed another six contract attorneys the following week.
The work progressed from standard analysis into a quality control review over the course of the project. Our contract attorneys were able to complete the project on time, and the firm saved money by using interim resources. The contractors received great reviews from the attorney managing them, and the firm has plans to reach out in the future if additional contract needs arise.
