Document Review.

In the not-so-distant past, a document review consisted of reading some pages of text.  Pages were gathered together for a government inquiry, investigation, lawsuit, or the like.  Documents relating to the matter were first collected by the parties and then provided to the requesting party's attorney pursuant to a set of guidelines.

The documents were collected at the office by people who worked for the company.  These pages were then provided to the requesting party's attorney in boxes.

When the attorney received the documents he/she would then conduct a more thorough "document review" in order to determine what was relevant or pertinent to the matter.

 

In the not-so-distant past document reviews were relatively uneventful jobs done in offices and law firms with very little fanfare.
