Paralegal Services

Preparing documents for electronic court submission requires expert knowledge,  precision and attention to detail.  While reviewing the outcomes of an edisclosure process demands trained and experienced resources.

Getting the right support for both of these can provide valuable efficiencies while ensuring compliance with the appropriate legal standards.

These are the key areas in which Legastat helps clients with our expert Paralegal Services.

Electronic Bundles

The increase in the adoption of eDisclosure in litigation and recent changes in working practices have driven a huge increase in the requirement to produce eBundles, which also offer several benefits over traditional, hard copy court bundles.

However, the preparation of court bundles in a fully compliant electronic format can present lawyers and their teams with several challenges.

eBundles can be time-consuming and complex, but it’s essential to get your electronic bundle right, first time and on time.

This is exactly where our eBundle service can help.

Managed Legal Review

Even when deploying class-leading eDisclosure technology to cull data during an early case assessment, the volume of documents that may require a first pass review in litigation, regulatory, compliance or investigatory matters can often exceed your own available resources.  This requirement is especially important where time pressures and deadlines apply.

This is where Legastat can help with our expert Managed Legal Document Review services.

People: We only use Legally Qualified and experienced document reviewers, all of whom have been careful screened, trained in Axcelerate™ and on-boarded to your project to produce highly efficient output of the highest quality, resulting in the optimum combination of value for money and quality.

Process: Our processes are tried, tested and flexible to the needs of an individual client’s requirements. From the on-boarding process, training, delivery of the document review and the quality control process, everything is designed to ensure efficiency and speed without compromising on quality. This is reinforced by having a project management and team leadership resource dedicated to every project. These teams provide expert knowledge, act as the client interface and manage the personnel and technology to ensure each project is fine tuned to be as efficient as possible.

Technology: Underpinning all our Managed Document Review projects is the core technology provided by our eDisclosure platform, Axcelerate™ from OpenText™. Two key elements of Axcelerate™ enable Legastat to leverage genuine strategic advantage in delivering a cost-effective, high-quality outcome. Firstly, via the fast, configurable and intuitive review interface our reviewers can work quickly and accurately increasing review rates with no reduction in quality. Furthermore Axcelerate™ provides class leading predictive analytics and Technology Assisted Review (TAR) which enables our review teams, supported by our technical consultants, to identify, prioritise and batch documents according to issues and automatically provide these to reviewers based upon the likelihood of them being relevant. All of this leads to a more efficient and accurate outcome for our clients.

Subject Access Requests and Redactions

Legastat has extensive experience in providing review and redaction services based upon Subject Access Requests (SARs). Depending on the nature of the material requested, legal complex redactions of sensitive personal information may be required.

Legastat provides a highly specialised service, efficiently and cost-effectively helping you ensure you do not miss the 1-month deadline imposed under GDPR.

Value Added Review Partners

Legastat will typically provide a first-tier legal document review service where the scope of the requirement, either in volume, timeframe, complexity or a combination of these factors, doesn’t require a review team of more than 15 to 20 reviewers and associated management and oversight.
