Jonathan Sharpley has a unique combination of experience: as an attorney, a project and process engineer and manager, and systems developer uniquely positioned at the apex of complex legal solutions. At Counsel On Call, this means he develops enterprise-level solutions in a variety of managed legal services, from transactions to eDiscovery, manages teams of attorneys, and designs and implements technology solutions that create new efficiencies and save clients significant fees.
As a former civil litigator, Jonathan relies on his experience to design and integrate streamlined litigation workflows with specially tailored information systems to manage thousands of matters, especially for FORTUNE 100 companies. These systems have allowed large teams of attorneys located around the U.S. to work seamlessly together and bring transparent and standardized treatments to matters. To support these projects, he utilizes his engineering background and programming skills to develop a host of new processes, tools and information systems.
In the eDiscovery arena, Jonathan has lead or managed more than 80 review projects and 60 privilege log initiatives. He has designed and created new software applications to support Counsel On Call’s proprietary eDiscovery processes, including the Counsel On Call Privilege Log Editor System (PLES), document visualizers, document sorting and threading, and automated privilege highlighting and screen development tools.
Jonathan has also managed and technically supported numerous large corporate transactions at Counsel On Call. As part of these efforts, he has assisted in creating workflows and database capture systems to support transactions in excess of $4 billion and as many as 17,000 analyzed contracts.
Prior to working at Counsel On Call, he was an associate at Rutherford & Christie LLP in Atlanta and clerked for the Superior Courts of Georgia. As an associate, he represented corporations and insurance providers in defending wrongful death and catastrophic personal injury, employment and worker’s compensation matters.
Before becoming a lawyer, Jonathan was a lead engineer for Honeywell Industrial Automation & Control. He has a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Texas A&M University and earned his J.D. from University of Georgia School of Law, where he graduated with honors.
