Document Review job, when outsourced, is done by legal professionals working under qualified U.S. attorneys at a reasonable cost – in fact, significantly more economical than handling it in-house. Outsourcing Document Review is economically beneficial at a savings of generally 35% or more and it is also time saver, allowing key staff to focus on more strategic elements in important cases.
The Document Review process is done by determining if the document that is discovered is relevant to the case in hand or not. Documents are bifurcated as responsive documents and non-responsive documents. When there is a Request For Production (RFP) of the documents, responsive documents are classified as privileged or non-privileged documents. Privileged documents are those documents which have attorney-client privilege in them i.e., documents which contain any communication between the attorney and client relating to the case in hand will be considered as privileged documents. Privileged documents also include the attorney work product doctrine and/or any confidentiality rules and privacy laws. These privileged documents will not be produced on filing RFP.
