Japanese Document Review Staffing

Japanese Doc Review is the only Japanese-fluent staffing solution that can assist with your Japanese language discovery needs.  We are positioned unlike any other staffing company in North America.  We are deeply familiar with not only the requirements in eDiscovery and project management, but additionally our team has collectively been involved in dozens of substantive matters typically found in complex Japanese documents with dozens of custodians and key terms.

Our recruiters speak Japanese, conducted and led Japanese review projects.  Japanese Doc Review, LLC manages the most active talent pool of Japanese Attorneys, Japanese-speaking Attorneys, JDs and Translators.



Managed Review & Hosting

We are technology agnostic.  Regardless of the platform, our Senior IT consultants can design a seamless workflow.  We take a hands-on approach and work directly with your IT department to ensure quality control.  If needed we can perform remote collections and process data in a single data center.

Our Project Managers are knowledgeable about Japanese review and have a strong relationship with our Japanese review team.  Very often, Project Managers are not fluent in Japanese, yet are tasked with the responsibility to monitor work flow and manage a Japanese language review.  With Japanese Doc Review, our clients get both the technical support and the linguistic domain expertise.

We quickly assemble the entire team often in less time than any other agency because we know the Japanese legal market very intimately.  We are invested in the Japanese corporate and legal community.

Other agencies claim to do foreign language review, but we built an entire organization devoted solely to Japanese review.  Law firms and corporate legal departments faced with a large body of Japanese documents, need not look any further.

For larger reviews requiring a massive team composed of Japanese and English, our company has built relationships with industry leaders in the eDiscovery space.  Please inquire for details and quotes.
