Clearwell Delivers E-Discovery

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Clearwell Systems, Inc., a leader in Intelligent E-Discovery, today announced that DLA Piper has achieved significant e-discovery efficiencies with the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform. Based on Thomson Litigation Consulting’s strategic advice, DLA Piper, the world’s largest law firm, utilized Clearwell to respond to a large last-minute data request within a five-day court-appointed deadline, a task that would have taken weeks if handled through traditional processes. With Clearwell, Thomson Litigation Consulting and DLA Piper processed and analyzed over 570,000 documents across 11 custodians, culled them down to 3,070 relevant documents, and then produced them – all in less than four days.

“On this case, the combination of Thomson Litigation Consulting’s strategic consulting and Clearwell’s technology was invaluable,” said Mary Pat Poteet, director of Litigation Support at DLA Piper. “Based on our experience, implementing technology for e-discovery is an absolute must, as it costs far less than the penalties of a sanction or a missed deadline. We could not have responded to this data request without Thomson and Clearwell, and definitely expect to use this approach again under similar circumstances.”
