Managed Document Review
An incomparable track record of conducting large-scale and sophisticated managed reviews.
Our expertise is the difference maker. Experience it for yourself.
Combining the best of both worlds, D4’s managed review solutions are performed by the expert team at our parent company, Special Counsel. Using a Six Sigma1 approach, Special Counsel starts from the assumption that document review is a repeatable process to which we can strategically add efficiencies throughout the stages and limit deviations.
Managed Review Services
When it comes to a managed review, fast and cheap isn’t enough to get the job done. Expertise is the source of real value—and real results— and with 30 years of review staffing and management experience, Special Counsel is the industry expert.
Special Counsel manages hundreds of reviews each year and is the only member in the legal staffing industry with a project manager certification program. We currently employ over 30 project managers—many of whom are permanent, full-time senior project managers—and a team of delivery project managers. All project managers have completed our project management training that was developed in conjunction with the Association of Certified eDiscovery Specialists.
Document Review Staffing
When the review is being managed by an in-house team, Special Counsel provides vetted contract attorneys for standard document review. As we do for managed reviews, we recruit and hire proven project attorneys with the requisite skill sets necessary to meet our clients' requirements for particular document review projects.
Foreign Language Document Review
Your document reviews are diverse, ranging in size, complexity, duration and, of course, languages. Special Counsel has extensive experience providing vetted, fully tested, foreign language attorneys and legal professionals who are fluent in a variety of languages, including French, German, Japanese, Mandarin, Russian, Spanish, and many others.
Turnkey Legal Centers
Special Counsel/D4 has over 15 turnkey review centers across the country that are designed specifically to accommodate large cases or litigation matters requiring additional legal staff and workspace beyond the capacity of many law firms and corporate legal departments.
This allows our clients to take advantage of markets with low cost labor, or markets with an abundance of reviewers with strong substantive specialties.
With the ability to house thousands of concurrent reviewers in centers throughout the US and abroad, no other agency matches Special Counsel’s capacity, technical support and scope of experience to meet growing eDiscovery demands.
For both large document sets and smaller cases, prioritization is key to letting you identify the information that is potentially relevant to your case as early as possible. This method ensures a consistent, accelerated review process so you can spend less time and money reviewing irrelevant data, and more time focusing on presenting quality evidence.
SightManager™, Special Counsel’s revolutionary document review management tool, delivers real-time, on-demand thumbnail and full-length screen views of our contract legal professionals’ work. Supervisors have complete access to monitor the quality and efficiency of reviewers working on a web-based review platform in any location, at any time. By using SightManager™ from the outset of a project, we substantially reduce the error rate throughout its course.
