Transatlantic Reinsurance Company Chooses Clearwell to Streamline Duty to Preserve

Clearwell E-Discovery Platform enables scalable, repeatable and defensible legal hold workflow for international reinsurance organization

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — May 25, 2011 — Clearwell Systems, Inc., a leader in intelligent e–discovery, today announced that Transatlantic Reinsurance Company, a subsidiary of Transatlantic Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: TRH), has chosen Clearwell to seamlessly manage the legal hold process. The Clearwell Legal Hold Module streamlines electronic data preservation by providing a scalable, repeatable and defensible legal hold workflow. With Clearwell, Transatlantic Reinsurance Company’s legal team can create, manage and track all legal hold notices in one place, and satisfy the essential duty to preserve from anticipation to completion of litigation.

“We chose Clearwell because we wanted a solution that would allow us to quickly and defensibly meet our legal hold needs, and integrate seamlessly with our use of the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform for downstream phases of e-discovery,” said George DiMartino, senior vice president and CIO, Transatlantic Reinsurance Company. “Clearwell Legal Hold will allow our attorneys to easily manage and track legal hold notifications across multiple custodians and multiple cases. This streamlined approach can simplify the legal hold process, satisfy the duty to preserve, and provide a defensible workflow in order to save time and risk throughout the e-discovery process.”

Clearwell Legal Hold automates and streamlines the legal hold process through a comprehensive set of scalable, repeatable and defensible capabilities. Key features of the Clearwell Legal Hold Module include hold notices, auto-reminders and auto-escalation, custodian surveys, custodian portals, and automated tracking and reporting. Additionally, the Clearwell Legal Hold Module is an integrated part of the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform, which supports all phases of the e-discovery process in a single, end-to-end product. Once a legal hold is issued, users (legal, IT or custodians) can easily collect relevant data that can then be seamlessly processed, analyzed, reviewed and produced all within the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform.

“The old way of manually managing legal hold notices via emails and spreadsheets is under fire, and companies can no longer sit and watch as courts continue to issue hefty sanctions for the failure to preserve data,” said Kamal Shah, VP of products and marketing at Clearwell Systems. “By leveraging Clearwell Legal Hold, companies are increasingly taking a proactive stance to implement a scalable, repeatable legal hold workflow that gives their attorneys peace of mind over the defensibility of their legal hold process, and reduces the risk of e-discovery sanctions.”
