ROLE OVERVIEW //

At Slaughter and May we have access to the most advanced industry leading technology platforms (involving AI); and primary responsibility for ensuring this technology is implemented on a day to day basis rests with our e-Disclosure Team.

Your role will be to work within our Forensic Analysis and Review Management Team (more specifically, within the e-Disclosure Team), alongside our e-Disclosure Service Provides and our internal Evidence Review Managers to deliver innovative, technology focussed solutions throughout the disputes and investigations processes and to provide support to our Competition Team as well. In addition to the core teamwork, the role can require the development of one-time solutions for other client needs in fields such as data breaches, cybercrime, M&A etc.

You will need to be enthusiastic and inquisitive about the use of technology, and a willingness to quickly learn and master different forms and applications of technology. You will need to have an interest in how technology can be used to drive efficiencies. An in-depth understanding of the EDRM model will provide you with the framework of how and where technology can be utilised within the project lifecycle.

Your immediate colleagues will be technical e-Disclosure specialists, and you will learn from them the technical aspects of the platforms we use. In turn, you will work together in implementing fit for purpose project workflows and in ensuring our e-Disclosure Service Providers deliver first class service.

You will need to be able to work alongside Associates and convince them of the merits of using advanced analytics; in some cases you will be delivering solutions to problems they may not be aware they even had. Independent thinking and inner motivation to keep up to date with industry advancements are essential.
