Recommind, a provider of text management systems for the legal industry, announced MindServer Legal Matters & Expertise, the newest addition to the MindServer Legal product suite that also includes Enterprise Search. Matters & Expertise extends document search to include a firm's attorneys, matters, deals, cases, and documents associated with any topic.
Matters & Expertise is designed to enable attorneys and legal staff to quickly locate expertise within their firm relevant to a particular legal topic, and understand what matters the firm has worked on relating to that topic. In the Matter View, details are provided for each matter, including the client, matter description, and dates as well as links to related documents and attorneys who have worked on the file. In the attorney view, users see the attorney's profile, all matters and documents associated with that attorney for the topic, and links to the attorney's contact information for immediate contact. MindServer Legal Matters & Expertise will be available in March 2005.
