From our earliest years Jones Kemp has provided special project support to our clients as a complement to our legal recruitment services.
We are expert in addressing critically urgent deadlines and extraordinary requests and typically supply special project support in response to clients’ immediate need and at the shortest of notice.
For a multi-million US$ merger due diligence exercise in UK and Europe, in response to a US Federal Trade Commission challenge: supplying on immediate urgent demand, physical infrastructure, multiple industrial photocopying machinery, office furniture, and coordination of complex foreign travel arrangements, all as complement to our supply of expert document review lawyers and temporary clerical support to the exercise.
In respect of a major UK Government Public Inquiry in Scotland: search for and rental of offices and domestic accommodation for the London law firm’s legal team. Supply of administration staff, IT equipment and photocopiers. Rental of an offshore supply ship for expert witness inspection of physical evidence related to the Inquiry.
For a major London law firm: specialist secure removal services for sensitive documentation and related IT equipment to new office premises.
For a major London law firm: organising travel and work visas for a large team of lawyers undertaking document review work on behalf of a leading bank in Dubai.
For Magic Circle firms: organising and hosting unique team building exercises and prestigious hospitality occasions. Events have included a day’s firefighting at an offshore survival centre, a shopping trip to the Vienna Christmas Market, snowmobiling in Lapland, treasure hunts in classic cars and river boats, an Alpine ski taster weekend, and various black tie dinners at spectacular venues.
For a Magic Circle firm: our client sought a means to affix identifiers to key original discovery documents, which could later be removed without damaging the document. The firm had been unable to find an off-the-shelf solution and asked Jones Kemp to assist. Detailed research led to discussions with the world’s leading adhesive manufacturer, who developed a solution specifically for this application. At the same time, Jones Kemp sourced paper labels which met the Client’s specification and a printing machine which could be modified to handle the bespoke label/adhesive combination. Hundreds of thousands of these document identifiers have been used by the firm since then.
For an international law firm’s Brussels office: searching, shortlisting and accompanied viewings of domestic accommodation as part of our placement of a new staff recruit.
