FlexLaw, a subsidiary of the leading Swiss business law firm Schellenberg Wittmer, offers efficient and flexible legal support services in areas which are generally both resource-intensive and cost-sensitive, such as large-scale document reviews, e-discovery, contract management and judicial filings.
FlexLaw is staffed with Swiss trained lawyers and other professionals with a legal background, who are either employed on a permanent basis or specially recruited according to the needs of a particular project. To ensure top-quality services, all FlexLaw professionals are selected, trained and supervised by Schellenberg Wittmer.
FlexLaw offers swift, efficient and flexible solutions for clients’ legal support needs in matters such as internal investigations, compliance reviews, complex litigation, corporate transactions and contract management projects. Our services are managed and supervised by Schellenberg Wittmer. FlexLaw adapts to the specific requirements of each individual project, be it on an ad-hoc or long-term basis, providing both on-site and remote support.
The setup of a separate service provider being held, managed and supervised by a first tier law firm is unique on the Swiss market and offers the advantages of both providers.
FlexLaw staff consists of Swiss trained lawyers, professionals with a legal background and law students, all carefully selected, trained and supervised by Schellenberg Wittmer.
FlexLaw and Schellenberg Wittmer have extensive experience in conducting and managing the entire lifecycle of e-discovery and with document review projects of all sizes.
FlexLaw works with specialized review software – e.g. Relativity, Digital War Room – as well as secure data room solutions, secure file exchange platforms and other productivity and analytics tools, including predictive coding.
For digital forensics – and, if required, also for data collection and processing – FlexLaw resorts to specialized third-party service providers with whom we have longstanding relationships.
FlexLaw has access to the IT infrastructure necessary to provide any service on secure internal and external IT platforms within Switzerland.
FlexLaw is able to offer its services at competitive prices. The pricing model is agreed individually with each client and is available on the basis of hourly, daily or monthly rates, depending on the nature of the project.
Being instructed and supervised by Schellenberg Wittmer, work performed by FlexLaw attracts Swiss legal privilege protection to the same extent as work performed by any Swiss law firm. Our third-party service providers are also bound by the same confidentiality obligations.
FlexLaw and Schellenberg Wittmer have supported clients with a wide range of projects, such as:
As a common feature, our support in these projects typically covers also the provision of strategic advice, including advice on the selection and use of advanced technology solutions. Such support in an early phase of project is often a key element for overall success.
