About a year and a half ago, an undisclosed academic client of Holland & Knight LLP found itself in a bit of a pickle: it had to comply with and respond to a governmental agency’s Title IX request for information.
Philip J. Catanzano, a senior counsel for Holland & Knight who advises schools on Title IX policies and cases, told Law360 Pulse that responding to the governmental request required going through a huge number of documents in a short period of time.
“How do we get through all these documents in an efficient way?” Catanzano said. “The option was using some associates at my firm or using [an outside provider], which could be totally dedicated to it and have the ability to staff it.”
The firm reached out to Level Legal, a legal services company that specializes in areas such as e-discovery and managed document review.
