BH Legal® Case Study

Contract Attorney Review Project 


Our client, an AM Law 100 Firm based in Philadelphia, was representing a major consumer products company in a $2.5 billion merger. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued a very broad second request to the firm’s client requiring the review of a massive amount of data and documents in a short period of time to demonstrate compliance, gain FTC approval and close the deal. The client needed a team of contract attorneys and a review center quickly to meet their deadline.


Beacon Hill Legal located and secured a document review center in Philadelphia, only blocks from our client’s offices. We installed high-speed internet, provided all necessary technology, including computers, monitors, printers, and more, as well as furnished the office and lunchroom with basic amenities and office supplies.​

We screened, interviewed, and processed conflicts on more than 200 contract attorneys with the firm, ultimately placing 125 reviewers and three onsite project managers with substantial e-discovery experience.

The Results

Our client attained substantial cost savings using our contract attorneys on a five-month review. The firm was able to oversee and manage the review at a convenient location. The parties obtained unconditional clearance for the merger following an eight-month investigation by the FTC and attorneys general in several states.
