I'm actually very interested in this point. I noticed that a lot of foreign language doc review projects are being handed out to temps, but does anyone know of any cases, or at least the possibility of, full-time associates handling foreign language doc reviews?
At this point, I have virtually no reason to believe that being fluent in an Asian language that's not Chinese (Korean) is of any use for my legal career.
I do, on one of my cases @ a V10. We have a single associate on the case who has been hit with virtually all of the Spanish documents since he joined the firm. We had previously sent Spanish to outside vendors but one time the tab for three boxes of translations came out to be almost 200k and the partner wasn't pleased.
That's very nice to hear:D
How did the billable hours come into play with the spanish-speaking associate? Is the V10 that you've worked with located in the U.S. (If so, which city)?
