AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - April 22, 2010) -  IE Discovery, a leading provider of comprehensive Discovery Management to the legal community today announced it will be conducting a free seminar on April 28, 2010 in Chevy Chase, Maryland, entitled "Searching for ESI in All the Wrong Places: What Every Lawyer Needs to Know About Using Search Tools in E-Discovery," which will feature Maura R. Grossman, Counsel at New York's Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz and Terry Sweeney, Infodox® Platform Manager at IE Discovery. CLE Certification will be provided for Virginia, Illinois, Pennsylvania and other states as requested.

The session will provide lawyers with fundamental, non-tech-speak knowledge about how different search technologies actually work, identify the strengths and weaknesses of the various technologies, provide practical examples, and equip the legal team to obtain the optimum results in e-discovery. The speakers will provide an overview of search fundamentals; a comparison of keyword, Boolean and "concept" search, including different types of concept search engines; a discussion of search in the FRCP Rule 26(e) "Meet and Confer;" best practices for using search tools in e-discovery; and background and status report on the TREC (Text Retrieval Conference) Legal Track.

"Search technology is taken for granted as a necessary tool to deal with the huge volumes of ESI common in discovery practice today. But there are a lot of questions. Are all search tools and methods created equal? Do they all get the same results? How do you know if the results are correct, complete and reliable? Did opposing counsel produce everything to which you are entitled?" said Terry Sweeney. "The proper search technology and criteria applied at the right points in the discovery process can make an important difference in the quality, quantity, and cost to produce electronically stored information."

The complimentary seminar will take place on April 28 2010 from 9:00 AM to 11:15 AM EDT at Microsoft's offices at 5404 Wisconsin Avenue, Suite 700 in Chevy Chase, Maryland. For more information or to register, please click or call 512-498-7400 x 7525.
