Due to downsizing, a large manufacturer was moving to a smaller facility
Two departments had retained 10,000+ boxes of documents
In just over eight months, Lumen’s team of 12 attorneys effectively reviewed all the documents per the record retention policy
Client Benefits: Reduced risk associated with improper document review & retention, reduced storage costs, an updated document retention policy and an estimated cost savings of $1.3 million over traditional law firm rates.
A large Michigan manufacturer of home building products identified a problem. It was relocating and could not house thousands of legal and accounting documents that had not been properly reviewed and categorized under the record retention policy. Due to downsizing, the corporation did not have the internal personnel to dedicate to the project.
Lumen assembled a team of attorneys who could understand the legal department’s complex litigation and IP documents and review them according to the company’s document retention, audit and legal hold policies.
The team size was quickly doubled to include Accounting documents and documents from other business units.
In addition to significantly reducing the number of documents by over 60%, our team also helped improve the corporation’s document retention policy and offered solutions to internal record keeping concerns.
