Temporary legal staffing is often used in cases involving the Hart Scott Rodino Act, just for the sheer number of documents that may be requested or provided during the discovery process. Documents must be reviewed for content prior to being forwarded to the opposing party. There are certain documents that should not be provided to opposing counsel—mostly documents that fall under the attorney-client privilege rule, but also some documents may fall under other confidentiality laws.
Experienced attorneys that work for temporary legal staffing agencies are often retained to review documents for this type of information. The temporary attorneys save the firm time and money by allowing the attorney on the case to work with other clients or to even work with the same client on another faction of the case at hand. This allows the attorney to keep their clients happy with the amount of time a client requires.
