MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Feb. 1, 2011 — Clearwell Systems, Inc., a leader in intelligent e–discovery, today announced that Time Warner, a global leader in media and entertainment, has commenced deployment of the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform for its in-house e-discovery strategy. E-discovery refers to the process in which electronic data is discovered in civil litigation. Time Warner’s legal and IT teams will use Clearwell for processing, analysis, review and production in order to significantly reduce the time, resources and costs required in response to litigation, regulatory inquiries and internal investigations.
The Clearwell E-Discovery Platform is an enterprise-class solution that was purpose-built for e-discovery. Clearwell’s Processing and Analysis Module provides several features such as Transparent Search, discussion threads and people analytics that enable users to significantly accelerate early case assessment, defensibly eliminate irrelevant documents and false positives, and rapidly perform first-pass review. Clearwell’s Review and Production Module enables reviewers to view all related documents in context, perform one-click tagging, redact documents and apply reason codes, increasing review throughput and consistency. Responsive documents can be produced or seamlessly uploaded into litigation support databases via EDRM-compliant XML and other major load file formats. In addition, the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform automatically tracks all actions on case documents throughout the e-discovery workflow, ensuring a defensible e-discovery process.
