The Project Supervisor works under the direction of the Project Manager. For very large cases, may be directly responsible for all work in a major task area. For example, on a case involving document discovery of millions of pages, a Project Supervisor may be responsible for all document discovery/document collection activities for the case. For a case involving an out of town trial, a Project Supervisor may be the individual in charge of the out of town trial support center. Alternatively, may assist several Project Managers on a multitude of smaller cases simultaneously. For example, the Project Supervisor may be responsible for coordinating delivery of document coding in one case, while simultaneously overseeing production of witness binders in another.
