At a Glance: Document Review
The entire document review process can benefit from the keen eye of an expert, no matter what field you work in. In the legal world, document review entails reading through all of a case’s submitted documentation, from contracts to internal memos to emails, to determine which items are relevant and which can be dismissed from the proceedings. Insurance companies review documentation supporting claims, customer service departments review complaints to determine the appropriate response, and marketing companies review research materials to create reports.
The document reviewers on Upwork are experts in their fields: paralegals and lawyers for legal document review, for example. They have honed the ability to quickly determine which reports, complaints, papers, notes, contracts, conversations, and other documents are pertinent to the issue at hand, whether that issue is a corporate acquisition, a customer request for a refund, or a study regarding the expansion of a business into a new market. Based on the client’s needs, they’ll filter out irrelevant documentation and supply notes summarizing those deemed relevant and justifying the exclusion of those that aren’t.
