The second session will provide an opportunity for attendees to learn first-hand from peers about how the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform can help solve some of the toughest e-discovery problems. The session will address the ways in which leading enterprises and law firms use Clearwell to handle key e-discovery issues, such as responding to time-sensitive antitrust inquiries, regulatory investigations, pre-litigation employment investigations and unique international eDisclosure requirements in the UK.
