Our client was served with third-party subpoenas by both the plaintiff and defendant to a dispute over the appraisal process, motives and fairness related to a property purchase between the parties. Accordingly, our client engaged Special Counsel’s Managed Review (MR) services to complete delivery of this non-party production within the discovery timeframes required. To that end, Special Counsel launched a MR that involved five attorneys and a project manager to review 18,200 documents with 3 weeks allotted for completion. In sum, the Special Counsel team worked collaboratively with outside counsel, PBWT and Special Counsel eQ, which offers hosting and processing services, to deliver a high-quality work product well ahead of schedule.
