With more in-house counsel using legal process outsourcing for litigation document review, structuring the relationship among in-house counsel, outside counsel and the legal process outsourcing provider is critical to protect the company against sanctions or malpractice litigation, and to ease a smooth and efficient review.
In this webinar, a panel of experts will review the ethical duty to supervise and discuss best practices for structuring the relationship among in-house counsel, outside counsel and the LPO (or other third party provider) to ensure that the litigators meet their duty to supervise, communication is consistent and constant and critical information is escalated properly.
