Overview

Mayer Brown is a leading global law firm with offices in 26 key business centres across the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. With approximately 200 lawyers in each of the world’s three largest financial centres — New York, London and Hong Kong — we are uniquely positioned to advise leading companies and financial institutions on their most complex legal needs. We have deep experience in high-stakes litigation and complex transactions across industry sectors, including our signature strength, the global financial services industry.

We are a collegial, collaborative and diverse firm where highly motivated individuals with an unwavering commitment to excellence receive the opportunity, support and development they need to grow, thrive and realise their greatest potential. We also encourage all our people to use their skills to support the wider community through our pro bono and community volunteering programmes. At Mayer Brown the principles of mutual respect, dignity and understanding are central to the way we work and help to provide an environment where diversity and inclusion are embraced.

Responsibilities

The Litigation Support Analyst will work within the London Litigation Support team, providing support to the Litigation Support Manager and to individual Mayer Brown partners and employees in handling digital media, managing document reviews and investigations, and ensuring that Firm procedures and best practices are followed when working with digital evidence.

The Litigation Support team is a central point of contact for solicitors in the Litigation and Dispute Resolution team as well as for other teams handing contentious matters and/or investigations. It also acts as the primary point of contact at Mayer Brown for external service providers.

The Litigation Support Analyst will:

* handle day-to-day management of digital media and datasets, including the maintenance of chain-of-custody records and the coordination of collections, receipts and deliveries of devices;
* carry out project management tasks with respect to individual investigations and electronic disclosure exercises, including but not limited to preparation of review batches, formulation of searches and implementation of updates to project workspaces;
* act as a liaison with external electronic disclosure and translation service providers, and with internal IT and Legal Risk Management teams;
* provide user support to internal and client users working with document review tools, file-sharing platforms and extranets;
* assist with regular audits of workspaces and user logins;
* work with the Litigation Support Manager on the planning of investigations and disclosure exercises;
* review and manage invoices from external service providers; and
* work with the Litigation Support Manager on the creation and maintenance of written resources and training materials relating to electronic disclosure.

Qualifications

The candidate must have either (a) a computer science or digital forensics degree or (b) at least two years of experience in working with electronic evidence and managing electronic disclosure projects.

One or more of the following qualifications or certifications (or comparable qualifications) would be highly desirable:

* Relativity Certified Administrator
* Nuix Workstation Data Discovery Core
* Nuix Workstation Data Discovery Specialist
* Nuix Workstation Data Discovery Administrator
* Certified E-Discovery Specialist
* PRINCE2
* CFCE
* EnCE

The Litigation Support Analyst will be reliable, organised and attentive to detail, a good problem-solver, and a clear and effective communicator.

The individual must be able to explain technologies and workflows to non-technical people, and to provide technical explanations of colleagues' needs to technical specialists; in other words, the individual must be able to "translate" between language of lawyers and that of IT specialists or disclosure service providers.

The candidate must have either (a) a computer science or digital forensics degree or (b) at least two years of experience in working with electronic evidence and managing electronic disclosure projects. The ideal candidate would have gained at least some experience in a service provider setting, and would have experience in providing services to and/or working at one or more international law firms.

The candidate should ideally have a strong understanding of the functionality of Relativity, Nuix and other leading document review and processing platforms, and the ability to carry out at least some administrative tasks on the platform(s).

The candidate should also understand the role and scope of other technologies and services used by leading law firms in dealing with digital evidence, including but not limited to computer forensics, social network analysis and electronic bundles.

A good understanding of electronic disclosure/forensic technologies marketplace would also be advantageous.

At Mayer Brown, we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive work environment that offers our people the opportunity and support they need to succeed. We are therefore happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments that individuals may require throughout the recruitment process and once they have joined the Firm.

In addition, one of our core values at Mayer Brown is to promote diversity and inclusion at all levels within the business which is actively supported by our diversity networks - LGBT+, Fusion (BAME), Women, and Work and Me (Family).
