Clearwell and Munger, Tolles & Olson Lead e-Discovery Web Seminar to Help Companies Address e-Discovery Challenges From Financial Crisis

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.—November 3, 2008—Clearwell Systems, Inc., a leader in Intelligent E-Discovery, today announced a free web seminar titled “Financial Crisis Act II: Responding to the Impending E-Discovery Tidal Wave” being held on Thursday, November 6 at 10 am PST. Clearwell’s vice president of e-discovery services, Dean Gonsowski, will be joined by Ron Best, director of legal information systems at Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP. Together, they will discuss how companies can take tangible steps to reduce the risk and anticipated costs of imminent lawsuits and investigations by investors, financial regulators, and state and federal governments.

During this interactive web seminar, Gonsowski and Best will discuss how e-discovery requirements for government investigations differ from traditional litigation. They will also discuss the top 5 challenges when responding to investigations, and how e-discovery tools that are focused on early case analysis, transparent searching and intelligent culling can help enterprises and law firms overcome those challenges in a rapid, accurate and defensible manner.

“The recent collapse in financial markets will clearly result in heightened government scrutiny,” said Best. “The resulting risk and cost of e-discovery for both corporations and law firms is very real, and they need to be prepared to respond rapidly and intelligently should an inquiry arise. This web seminar will help identify key e-discovery issues for executives and attorneys to consider when handling government inquiries.”

During the web seminar, Gonsowski and Best will also field questions on the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform® for processing, analysis, and review of electronically stored information (ESI). For more information or to register for the free web seminar, click here.
