Case Management for Complex Litigation

Effective case management is critical to the success of complex litigation. We utilize state-of-the-art technology in extranets, document management, calendaring and eDiscovery. Most importantly, we work with clients to ensure our strategy is on track with your goals.

eDiscovery

We are national eDiscovery counsel for some of the world’s largest companies. Our eDiscovery capabilities are award winning. Law Technology News awarded us with the 2012 Most Innovative Use of Technology in a Large Law Firm Award for our Intelligent Discovery Process™. Our approach to eDiscovery combines technologically enhanced, automated analysis of documents and focused attorney review, thereby increasing review efficiencies and reducing discovery costs in complex litigation. Our services include developing legally defensible document and data retention, backup, archiving and destruction policies and data mapping.

Litigation Work Plans

We collaborate with inside counsel to develop an overarching litigation strategy and work plan that accounts for the potential of proceeding to trial, the probability of success at each phase of litigation, and the extent of discovery required. These work plans serve as effective case management tools, allowing us to anticipate challenges, proactively identify resources, increase efficiencies and reduce costs.

Case Reviews

Our success relies on your success. At our cost, our litigation practice leaders regularly review significant matters with the case team and often with the client, to ensure that the strategy, staffing and budget are effectively managed. We find these periodic case reviews to be tremendous quality management tools.
