National Implementation Will Help Lawyers Find Documents in Seconds

BERKELEY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 23, 2005 -- Recommind, the leading provider of text management systems for law firms, announced that the law firm of DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary US LLP plans to expand its use of MindServer Legal Enterprise Search to all US offices in the combined firm.
