  • Both may involve formulating and applying search terms to electronically held data provided by the client, sifting and reviewing raw data for relevance (whether through e-discovery platforms or other electronic means), identifying non-relevant/privileged/business confidential material, collation, redaction and indexing ready for production, and working collaboratively with clients' IT / discovery management personnel.

  • Drafting agendas and lists of issues for case management discussions.
  • Assisting with the drafting of  COT3 settlements.
  • Drafting briefs to counsel and liaising with barristers and clerks.

  • Regular liaison with other paralegals, trainees and lawyers to ensure the efficient management of caseloads and deadlines.

The Ideal Candidate

  • Preferably with practical experience of handling larger scale disclosure and/or employee DSARs under data protection legislation, including the core steps as set out in the section above.
  • Familiarity with e-disclosure tools and platforms would also be preferable, but not essential.
  • A confident communicator.
  • Able to deal effectively with internal and external contacts in both verbal and written communication in a clear concise and collegiate manner.
  • Close attention to detail and an eye for quality are key skills given the context in which the paralegal role sits in the team.
