A premier, pure-play, legal support services provider with offices in New York, Chicago and Hyderabad (India), QuisLex was founded by attorneys from Skadden Arps, Shearman & Sterling and Sidley Austin. Our rapid growth since inception has been fueled almost entirely by repeat work from existing clients and client references. We focus exclusively on providing complex and specialized legal support services, such as Early Data Assessment and document review for litigation, contract review and management, and M&A services, to our litigation and corporate clients, which include Fortune 500 companies, leading U.S. and international law firms, and large financial institutions. Key factors in our success include:
Comprehensive Litigation Services: We have reviewed more than two billion pages, created privilege logs running into tens of thousands of entries in compressed time frames, handled matters before most jurisdictions and regulatory agencies in the U.S. and worldwide and worked with most of the Am Law 50 and Magic Circle law firms, including numerous matters where we have been recommended by the law firms.
Comprehensive Corporate Experience: We have a proven track record of successfully designing and implementing industry-first complex contract analysis projects and end-to-end contracts management solutions. We support our clients worldwide in these efforts and currently work across more than 14 time zones and in multiple foreign languages.
Six Sigma-Driven Approach to Quality: We have a large and sophisticated Quality Team comprised of Master Black Belts, Black Belts and Quality Analysts whose sole function in the company is to monitor and improve the quality of the work product we deliver, at no additional cost to our clients. This team serves as an independent check on every one of our projects and is one of the primary ways in which we have differentiated ourselves from competitors. Our Six Sigma rigor and the expertise of our Quality Team allow us to execute projects on shorter time frames and with a higher degree of quality and budget certainty.
ISO, SSAE 16 (formerly known as SAS 70) & EU Certifications: We have been the industry thought leader and the first LPO to achieve several rigorous and prestigious third party certifications such as ISO 9001:2008 certification for our proprietary Legal Quality Management System; ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certification for our data security and information security management system; SSAE 16 (SOC 1 and SOC 2) certification from a Big Four Audit firm for compliance with controls; HIPAA compliance; and EU Safe Harbor self-certification. Our clients know that we are constantly measuring and being measured on processes and security to ensure we consistently evaluate and implement industry leading and industry best practices.
Superior Training: We continuously invest time and resources in training our permanent employees. Our employee training program is managed by our senior U.S. attorneys and former university professors and is designed to take advantage of both the experience our management gained working at major U.S. law firms and the knowledge and information we have gathered over the last eight years. All of our employees undergo extensive training upon joining QuisLex and receive regular training thereafter on various substantive aspects of our litigation and corporate work, technology solutions, ethics and cultural issues.
Committed, Highly Motivated Permanent Employees: All of our attorneys are permanent employees. We have a 100% merit based culture and are an “Employer of Choice” for QuisLexians. Several of our employees have LLBs, LLMs and JDs from world-class law schools in India, the U.K. and the U.S. Our attrition has consistently been low and a good number of our employees have progressed to senior level client management and review management positions. A clear, demonstrable career path coupled with a merit based system has created a unique culture of performance, ownership and accountability among our employees that distinguishes us from our peers. Furthermore, our teams bring their institutional knowledge of our clients and their industries to each successive engagement, ensuring an ongoing familiarity with our clients’ terms of art, business structure and communications, which leads to greater efficiencies and insights.
