Project Highlights

  • A Detroit automaker needed help with an ongoing litigation matter

  • Paralegals were needed in five markets across the U.S.

  • Lumen delivered an experienced team with strong case management and case preparation skills

Estimated Client Savings: $2.7 million vs. large law firm rates

The Scenario:

An international automotive corporation engaged Lumen Legal to provide paralegals to assist the company’s various outside law firms with a large-scale, ongoing litigation matter. Lumen’s paralegals would work on-site with our client’s various law firms and be dedicated solely to its  litigation, fostering efficiency and the development of intellectual capital.

Our Solution:

  • Lumen developed a customized recruit plan and drew upon its proprietary database of more than 430,000 legal professionals to provide top talent in New York, Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

  • A team of paralegals with strong case management and case preparation skills was delivered. Their duties included drafting legal documents, managing and organizing files, coordinating local counsel, acting as liaisons to clients, and tracking information and metrics.

  • Lumen created a customized billing procedure for the project, employing a traditional matter management model but incorporating a web-based system for tracking and convenience.


The project ran for two years and delivered $2.7 million in cost savings to the client over large law firm rates.
