In March 2020, as offices around the world closed due to the global pandemic, CDS transitioned to fully remote document reviews. One year later, we have learned many lessons about what works and where adjustments and improvements can still be made.
The pandemic has tested us personally, professionally and organizationally. Successfully transitioning to this new reality required certain immediate, practical adjustments that not every employee, leader or company could reasonably make.
The adversarial process, the diverse parties, novel fact patterns – every litigation, every investigation, every deal offers the practitioner a chance to refine their expertise, extend their capabilities and apply their skill set.
