Legal staffing agencies provide legal process outsourcing jobs for attorneys that are experienced in the pharmaceutical field. Many firms in the pharmaceutical field need experienced document review attorneys. Document review attorneys review documents, whether electronic or hard copies, for confidentiality issues.
The biggest confidentiality issue at hand is attorney-client privilege. Emails are exchanged between attorneys on the case and between an attorney and the attorney's client. The emails and other correspondence between the attorney and the attorney's client is usually confidential in nature and is not subject to disclosure.
If an email or other attorney-client correspondence is provided in discovery to the opposing counsel(s), it might open the way for additional attorney-client documents to be requested in the discovery process. Document review attorneys ensure that no documents that fall under attorney-client privilege are inadvertently disclosed.
