Services for Law Firms
Helping firms function more efficiently, effectively and competitively.
Litigation Document Review
We systematize our processes to ensure high quality, efficiency, predictability and cost control, and we can provide support both onshore and offshore. Our review and quality control processes are designed for defensibility, and we collaborate with the firm to ensure all ethical obligations are met. We thoroughly track each reviewer’s performance across projects and staff future projects with an optimal mix of our highest performing reviewers. Our Six Sigma approach to quality ensures continuous improvement of our people and processes, delivering excellence and dependability for our clients.
Elevate offers both linear and non-linear review methodologies, and we are flexible as to which review tool we use. To best suit the needs of every project, Elevate offers consulting on the most effective approach to document review, including considerations around the use of technology assisted review. To enable our clients to better plan and predict costs, we offer alternative fee arrangements that are transparent and flexible, and we also offer pricing per unit (document, page, or size), per hour, and per project.
With Elevate Document Review, law firms and GCs alike can depend on efficient, high quality results and predictable cost control.
