Recent Case Example:
A recent case managed by Kalyn was for an investigation of an investment management company regarding fees structures. The investigation involved nearly 100,000 documents and a very short time frame for review and production. Kalyn and her team completed the project on time, within budget, and with praise from the firm. The documents presented some technical challenges in size and also in outdated formatting that required coordinating with the firm and the vendor to convert these documents and properly code them for production, while remaining under budget for the project and within the required time frame.
