Product Liability Litigation Case Study

$3 to $5 Million in Cost-Savings Identified

Client Issue

In addition to full scale managed reviews, Hudson delivers discovery consulting services designed to evaluate vendors, forecast review expenses and uncover opportunities for efficiencies. Although most effective when undertaken as part of early phase assessment, these services also drive considerable value as part of remediation initiatives; in other words, when the review is behind schedule, over budget, or otherwise not succeeding.

Hudson Legal Solution

Hudson performed a quality audit at the request of the procurement department for a global pharmaceutical firm in the midst of litigation for two household-name consumer medicines. With a 250-plus review staff operating in two cities, Hudson found performance metrics were nonexistent. Additionally, we advised that responsive documents were being over-collected in the first level review, with work performed frequently by more costly staff attorneys and associates .

Hudson Legal Results

Hudson identified $3 to $5 million in potential cost savings across four reviews in this product liability litigation case, proposing a hierarchical billing structure and in-depth performance tracking to bring costs in line and get the reviews on the right track.
