In only four years, Tower Legal Solutions' (www.towerls.com) young management team has quickly built this WBENC-certified enterprise from the ground up, leveraging its high professional standards to build a "Rapid Response" unit that provides law firm and corporate clients with exceptional temporary attorneys, paralegals, managed review and foreign language services. Tower can - and has - launched several 100 plus person document review projects with less than 24-hour notice, and stepped into a floundering review project managed by a competing firm and successfully refocused the project to meet critical budgets and deadlines.
