Badenoch & Clark is pleased to announce the launch of an additional service to provide document review and managed review to leading law firms, banks and in-house legal teams.

Working in partnership with eQ and Special Counsel in the US, who already work with leading law firms and a range of in-house clients, B&C draws on its market expertise and networks to provide high-quality managed review services more cost-effectively to clients.  

In addition to legal reviewers, clients have access to a Managed Review Centre, legally qualified project managers and a specialist document review management tool. 

The Managed Review Centre forms part of the TurnKey Legal Centre network, which has offices across the United States, including New York City, Washington, D.C, and Miami. Clients benefit from 24-hour access to workspace, with all the comforts and facilities lawyers might need, all within walking distance to key London locations. The Centre is equipped with high-speed internet connectivity and a secure data centre, and has been designed to be extremely secure, providing 24-hour building security, controlled access and private work suites.  

The B&C managed review service can also help law firms free up associates’ time, thanks to legally-qualified project managers who can lead projects on clients’ behalf. The project management teams will tailor review methodologies, workflows, checkpoints and resource estimates to meet customers’ specific goals. All project managers hold the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) certification.  

Clients also benefit from access to the SightManager document review management tool that delivers real-time screen views of legal professionals’ work. This allows the project management team to immediately spot and correct any reviewer errors, substantially reducing the error rate throughout the course of a project.  

The launch forms a part of a broader strategy from Adecco Group to deepen its sector expertise and develop new complementary services to support existing and prospective clients and follows the recent referendum in the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.  

Nikki Coleman, Associate Director for the legal sector at Badenoch & Clark, says the company is well-placed to launch the service: 

    “Some of our clients may require as many as 130 reviewers at just a day’s notice. Our recruitment expertise enables us to bring together the right talent more quickly and cost effectively than other operators in the market.  

    “We’ll be matching this quick access to reviewers with a state-of-the-art centre as well as specialist technology that boasts accuracy rates of 98%. We are also the only managed review provider to use a fully qualified, global team of project managers, holding the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) certification. Our legally qualified project managers can free up significant amounts of associates’ time. 

    “London is one of the world’s leading legal hubs. We believe that the impact of Brexit will only increase the demand for expert legal services at a short notice and this is what Badenoch & Clark’s new service can provide. The London-based service is intended as the first stage of a broader expansion, with Europe, the Middle East and Australia being potential new markets to expand into.”
