Clearwell Systems Receives 2008 Law Technology News "New Product of the Year" Award

Law Technology News Subscribers Recognize Clearwell E-Discovery Platform With the Bronze Award in "New Product of the Year" Category

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - December 11, 2008) - Clearwell Systems Inc., a leader in intelligent e-discovery, today announced the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform received a bronze award in the 2008 Law Technology News (LTN) Awards "New Product of the Year" category. The sixth annual LTN Awards recognize leaders in the field -- both in innovation and implementation. Clearwell was nominated for the version 4.0 release of the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform, which was the only e-discovery product to receive an award in its category. The selection process is based on votes from more than 40,000 subscribers of LTN.

Version 4.0 of the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform was launched in August 2008 and features Transparent Search among its several market-leading capabilities. Transparent Search enables users to remove the "black box" of search tools and deliver a more defensible e-discovery search process. Key features, such as search preview and search filters allow users to test, sample, and iteratively refine keyword searches. Additionally, the product documents each step in the search process, enabling users to "show their work" in the courtroom. As a result, legal teams can now devise more defensible search strategies, better collaborate on keyword search terms, and dramatically reduce false positives and irrelevant documents prior to review.

"We are honored to be selected as a new product of the year by LTN subscribers -- and as the only e-discovery product recognized in our category," said Sean Wilcox, director of marketing at Clearwell Systems. "This recognition is a testament to Clearwell's leadership in the industry and to our proven ability to significantly lower the cost and risk of e-discovery for our enterprise and law firm customers worldwide."

"LTN Technology Award winners are nominated and selected by actual product users, who demand solid value and performance," said Stephen Lincoln, vice president and national group publisher for Incisive Media. "These winners can feel proud that their products and services have earned the respect and recognition of professionals throughout the industry."
