Coronavirus Impact Statement

Legility 03 / 14 / 20

Keeping Your Business in Motion During COVID-19

As the world works to contain the spread of COVID-19, the Legility team is adapting. We've implemented safety measures, and are taking care of our employees and our clients.

We’re also helping law firms and legal teams globally make a seamless transition to remote business with our secure remote solutions, backed by our experienced teams and world-class protocols.

Discover new ways to get the business of law done:

Force Majeure provisions: Review & analysis

With the immediacy of the evolving COVID-19 situation requiring analysis of contractual options, companies must be able to efficiently assess their risk. A fast review, capture, and abstraction process can surface actionable information in contracts.

Secure virtual managed review

Legility’s virtual managed review provides peace of mind that review work will be done on time and with quality – no matter what. We’ve built working remotely into our daily operations, so our clients can trust their business with us will not be disrupted even in unprecedented times.

On-demand lawyers provide valuable legal expertise

With workforces suddenly impacted, many in-house departments need employment-law expertise. Healthcare specialization is in demand, as that sector grapples with supply shortages and property management. Universities, retailers, and hospitality are facing similar challenges. Flexible talent provides access specialized, qualified lawyers quickly.

Remote eDiscovery data forensics & collection 

Litigants and case teams should consider remote eDiscovery methods that will keep their employees safe. Remote Assisted Collection Kits allow a forensic examiner to access data on a device that may be thousands of miles away.

Coronavirus update: March 14, 2020

As COVID-19 continues to affect the global community, we have taken steps to ensure business continuity for all our clients and partners around the world, and taken decisive action to slow the transmission of coronavirus for the health of our employees, our communities, and society as a whole.

Like all of you, we want to take all the steps we can to ensure the safety of our employees while continuing to provide services without disruption to our clients. Fortunately, our business model, along with steps we have taken to prepare for events like these, put us in a good position to remain agile during this trying time:

  • Business Continuity Plan: Based on guidance from the World Health Organization, we have augmented our already robust ISO27001 compliant Business Continuity Plan with specific steps to help us navigate through this event.
  • Zero Systems Impact: We have a robust and distributed eDiscovery technology footprint, and the performance of our systems will not be impacted by the development of this public health situation.
  • Remote Workforce: We have a number of employees that already work remotely, and effective today, we are encouraging the broader Legility and Inventus teams to work remotely as a precaution. This is a normal work practice for us, and you will see no change in ability to maintain the high-quality, fabled service that is one of our core values.
  • Secure Virtual Managed Review: For our centralized Managed Review teams, we are able to provide highly secure remote access for our teams through our Secure Virtual Attorney solution. For clients of these services, we will be consulting with you directly to ensure you understand our secure remote capabilities and support this for your projects before we make changes to your environment.
  • Travel Restrictions: We have stopped all employee travel, both international and domestic, until we see an improvement in outlook and sentiment. Like many of you, we have instructed employees to leverage technology and conduct internal and external meetings virtually as much as possible.

As with many businesses, there are a limited number of job functions that need to occur in one of our offices. We will maximize our global, multi-location footprint to maintain these services and will keep you updated on any changes to our physical office availability, as needed.

The health and safety of our employees, customers, partners, and communities is paramount. We have provided clear guidelines to our employee family that are aligned with both common sense and best practices from the World Health Organization.

We have also made the tough, but prudent, decision to postpone our annual client Symposium. We all love this special event, which was scheduled for late April, and we will look forward to exploring holding it later in the year.

We have set up an inbox monitored by our security and leadership team for any questions related to COVID-19 and our service delivery: Please reach out directly any time to covid at legility dot com.

This is an unprecedented time for everyone, and the situation is changing daily. We are committed to maintaining our business operations and ensuring you continue to receive the highest quality service from us, without disruption. We are fortunate that we can make these changes with no business disruption, and we thank you for your continued trust in us.
