If your firm is a small- to medium-sized firm, you may be reluctant to take a large case because of the extra attorneys needed to review the expansive amount of documents that might accompany a complex civil litigation case. Using legal staffing, a small- to medium-sized firm can comfortably take and handle larger complex civil litigation cases.
Legal staffing companies provide experienced attorneys to review electronic documents. Electronic documents include emails between the attorneys in the matter and emails between the attorney(s) and client(s). Correspondence, including emails, between an attorney and a client is, under most circumstances, confidential, and is not discoverable.
There are other documents that may be requested during the discovery process, but are also not discoverable. Attorneys provided by a legal staffing agency are experienced document reviewers and weed out all documents that fall under attorney-client privilege.
