Opportunity

Our client needed an additional attorney to assist with a large case involving a complex workload and an impending deadline.

Business Challenges

The end-client's budget constrictions for this particular matter made it difficult for our client to justify the cost of billing an additional associate’s normal hourly rate, so they reached out to Special Counsel for assistance.

Engagement / Our solution

In just a few days, Special Counsel's recruiters located a contract attorney with the litigation experience and knowledge sought by our client.

Our contract attorney immediately excelled in his new role and began taking on his own defined workflow. As time progressed and the case developed, our contract attorney's responsibilities grew to include collecting witness depositions, indexing documents, authoring motions, and taking over point-person duties between the firm and the end-client’s general counsel.

At the end of the matter, our client offered our excellent contract attorney a full-time position, which he accepted.
