Level Legal fast-tracks internal investigation for major international semiconductor company to meet stringent time and budget goals
Faced with a high-level internal HR investigation, a multi-billion-dollar international semiconductor company asked Level Legal to help them fast-track the review of thousands of key documents in two languages, while meeting strict time and budget conditions.
Internal investigations pose a unique set of challenges to in-house legal departments. They are time-sensitive, unpredictable, and absorb considerable resources to review high volumes of data. In-house counsels, on the other hand, usually have limited budget and bandwidth to devote to the matter.
By engaging Level Legal’s Investigations team, the client had four main criteria for success: Accurately predict the time and costs from the outset of the project, deliver relevant and key material within a two-week time limit, stay within a defined budget, and enable the in-house counsel to perform their normal departmental duties without disruption.
Level Legal helps AmLaw 10 firm respond to government subpoena response
A prestigious East Coast AmLaw 10 law firm known for its international client base and commitment to public service was tasked with conducting a highly sensitive, government-sealed investigation for one of America’s most revered pillars of higher education and research. The law firm turned to Level Legal’s trusted panel of data-driven experts to supplement its internal resources for this multinational investigation.
The project was a complex matter involving a strict timeframe dictated by a grand jury subpoena, highly visible international scrutiny over the outcome, a massive review set containing both English and Chinese language documents, and the additional pressure of delivering defensible results while working under COVID-19 restrictions.
The timing of this investigation - the same week that shelter-in-place orders rolled out across the United States - required all parties to be experts in managing a distributed workforce while working under the most stringent levels of security and confidentiality.
