BH Legal® Case Study

Multilingual Staffing: Multiple Languages Needed for Law Firm Client

Our Boston client was in charge of a document review project that had documents in twenty-two different languages. Fearing one agency would never have all of these people, they reached out to multiple agencies for candidates. At the request of the general counsel of their client, this firm engaged Beacon Hill Legal on this project.


Our law firm client had documents in twenty-two different languages: Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Dutch, Slovak, Latin, Vietnamese, Czech, Turkish, Portuguese, Arabic, Hebrew, Korean, Hindi, Greek, German, Thai, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, Russian and Spanish. They needed licensed attorneys to come in and review these documents.


Our law firm client had offices in Boston, New York and Washington, DC. To find the required number of attorneys fluent in all of these languages, Beacon Hill Legal advised our client to house the contractors in all three of their east coast offices. This would enable us to tap into a much larger, more diverse group of candidates. Our Boston director acted as the single point of contact for this law firm client and worked with recruiters form Beacon Hill Legal Boston, New York and Washington, DC in finding candidates.

The Results

Our law firm client engaged four total agencies and used some of their own internal resources to find candidates for this project. Beacon Hill Legal staffed almost seventy-five percent of the total project and our law firm was able to successfully review all of the foreign language documents on this matter.
