e-Discovery Specialist (LAW FIRM)

Los Angeles, CA, United States
  • Employment Type: Direct Hire
Our client, a top ten global law firm, seeks an e-Discovery Specialist/Project Manager to join their Orange County, Los Angeles, San Francisco or Palo Alto offices and Litigation Support Team. Though this role will be part of a large global team, it works with a nimble and lean West Coast group. This role requires case management autonomy, meaning you will own the full EDRM lifecycle of your matters and be expected to consult as well as process and host your cases’ data. The right candidate will possess strong Relativity skills with the ability to provide strategic and tactical/technical leadership to their case teams. The Project Manager will manage external collection vendors but will process their case data and provide directing, hosting, review, and production support. This firm insources most of the EDRM post-collections. Experience processing in Relativity is highly desired, but this client is willing to train if the candidate processes in another tool. Highly compensated, paid overtime. RCAs means first consideration. Send resumes to [email protected].
