Orrick Analytics Project Attorney

Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP
Wheeling, IL 60090 Work Remotely

What you need to know:  Successful applicants will be required to provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to the commencement of employment. Applicants who wish to apply for a medical, religious accommodation or any other accommodation required under applicable law can do so later in the process (accommodations are not guaranteed and are decided on a case-by-case basis).

Orrick has an opportunity for an attorney with 2+ years of experience to join our Orrick Analytics team as a Project Attorney.  Successful candidates will be established in our Global Operations & Innovation Center in Wheeling, WV and consideration given for 100% remote US locations.  

Orrick Analytics is a team of lawyers, statisticians and other professionals that uses state-of-the-art technology and probability modeling in document-heavy engagements. The type of work ranges from massive document reviews in litigation to large-scale contract reviews and other due diligence.  The Analytics team’s mission is straightforward: enhance speed and accuracy of document review; generate insights specific to the engagement; and reduce our clients’ costs.

Our Analytics team operates from our Global Operations & Innovation Center in West Virginia. Unlike Legal Process Outsourcers (LPOs), our in-house team model offers the benefits of full integration with the litigation and transactional lawyers leading the engagement. Working together on a regular basis ensures that the culling of data from documents is performed with the utmost care, and the purpose of the review always remains at the forefront.

Are you looking to work in a dynamic team-oriented work environment? 

  • Project Attorneys are tasked with handling project intake, staffing, planning, budgeting, execution, documentation, communication and related project tasks.
  • You will be responsible for due diligence and related transaction support.
  • You have the responsibility to ensure the proper integration of technology at the project level.
  • You will maintain knowledge of developments in technology including e-discovery to ensure project efficiency.
  • We are devoted to the continuous improvement of the processes and methodologies we utilize to execute document review projects.
  • A Juris Doctor and successful bar passage and admission to practice in good standing in a U.S. jurisdiction is required.
  • Some practice experience preferred.
  • Significant document review experience, including experience making privilege determinations and preparing privilege logs.
  • A successful Project Attorney will possess strong supervisory and team-building skills.
  • Two years of experience in project lead or supervisory roles, preferably of both small and large teams.
  • Excellent communication and interactive skills at all levels and a shown ability to work with a wide variety of personality types.
  • Planning and organization skills are important in this role, including the ability to meet deadlines and to lead multiple projects concurrently.
  • Do you have the ability to problem solve and make decisions? A can-do approach in these areas is crucial. 
  • Proficiency in spreadsheet and other office software, as well as litigation support and document review software.
  • Good writing skills.

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Consistent with the SF Fair Chance Ordinance, an arrest and conviction record will not automatically disqualify a qualified applicant from consideration for employment. For attorney positions, a 'qualified applicant' is an individual who is a member of the State Bar of California, admitted in good standing, and is eligible to practice[1]; or whose admission to the State Bar of California and eligibility to practice remains subject only to successful completion of the California Bar Examination.

Qualified applicants with criminal histories will be considered for the position in a manner consistent with the requirements of the Los Angeles Fair Chance Initiative for Hiring.
