Symantec to Support US Patent Office With E-Discovery Software; Gigi Schumm Comments

Symantec will provide the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office software for electronic discovery in managing and analyzing documents, the company said Wednesday.

The company designed the Clearwell eDiscovery Platform for officials to search, review, tag and export information from documents.

“Each year, the amount of electronically stored information that the PTO generates and manages is astounding,” said Gigi Schumm, vice president and general manager for Symantec’s public sector.

She added the company wants to help the agency make the e-discovery process more manageable.

Clearwell’s search, discussion threads and people analytics features are designed to perform early case assessments, eliminate irrelevant documents and false positives and perform first-pass reviews.

Customers also perform one-click tagging, redact documents and apply reason codes for review throughput.

CACI International is providing e-discovery services to the Securities and Exchange Commission, where the company is converting documents into electronic formats for attorneys to use in preparing legal cases.
