Exterro to Sponsor Interactive Panel Discussion During the Upcoming LegalTech 2007

Industry Experts Will Share Proven Strategies for Controlling Discovery Costs, Schedules & Risk

PORTLAND, OR -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 23, 2007 -- According to a leading analyst company, three-quarters of all global companies will be involved in regulatory or legal action. Yet most companies still lack a systematic approach to Litigation Support and Discovery. Corporate officers and in-house counsel are therefore highly concerned about their exposure as well as the spiraling costs of the Discovery process.

To help legal professionals take control of the Discovery process, Exterro -- a leading provider of discovery management solutions -- will sponsor a timely panel discussion at LegalTech 2007 New York running from January 29-31, 2007 at the New York City Hilton Hotel:

"Doing More with Less: Proactive Strategies for Controlling Discovery Costs, Schedules & Risks"

The panel discussion will be held Monday, January 29, 2007 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the New York City Hilton Hotel.

The esteemed panel will feature a broad range of legal industry experts and includes: Chad Papenfuss, Fredrikson & Byron, Litigation Support Administrator; Doug McLaughlin, Consulting Counsel, Litigation Management & E-Discovery for Qwest Communications; Karen Greene, Esq, Consultant for Baker Robbins & Co, Technology Advisors; Trent Livingston, principal at LECG; and David Haines, Exterro Executive Vice-President.

The panelists will address each phase of the Discovery process including evidence collection, processing, review and production -- then identify those challenges specific to each phase.

Key topics for discussion include (1) the need for more effective collaboration between legal teams (2) the importance of standards and processes (3) and the ability to centralize and integrate case critical processes. Practical advice will be offered for each challenge with the experts sharing best practices and real-world case studies.

As part of LegalTech New York, Exterro will also be demonstrating its comprehensive litigation support lifecycle management solutions by private appointments that can be set at Booth # 3201.
