Mindjet Helps the General Counsel Forum Bring Message of Productivity and Effectiveness to 12th Annual Conference

MindManager Software Demonstrates Conference Themes -- Building Trust, Increasing Effectiveness, Reducing Costs

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - November 16, 2010) - Mindjet®, the leading provider of software and web-based applications for visually organizing and managing information and ideas, today announced their participation at the 12th Annual Conference of General Counsel. The Conference, titled Faster, Better, Cheaper: the unrelenting need to create more with less, is a natural platform to showcase how MindManager drives productivity and effectiveness for the legal community.

MindManager®'s visual information maps start with a central theme, and then add branches with ideas, notes, images, tasks, hyperlinks and attachments imported from a variety of sources. MindManager maps are used by lawyers to capture and organize legal research, take notes, brainstorm ideas, manage workflow and organize transactions. It's these elements of the software which have proven so compelling for the legal community and its constant drive for efficiency.

"MindManager is a key product for the legal community and embodies a solution to the challenges all in-house counsel face today," said John DeGroote, Chairman of the General Counsel Forum®'s Annual Conference and former CLO at BearingPoint®, Inc. "With the continued pressure to do more with less while maintaining a standard of excellence, MindManager helps organize information and provide context to drive faster, more insightful decisions."

MindManager is used by companies in multiple industries including manufacturing, consulting, healthcare, consumer packaged goods and others to organize and work with unstructured information to help make informed decisions to positively impact growth. In-house counsel have critical information needs, such as accessing disparate items of information on short notice, managing meetings, explaining complex issues, and organizing large, often time-sensitive transactions. MindManager has been deemed by many lawyers as a secret weapon in the trial and deal management processes.

"Collecting, managing and understanding how to use information effectively to drive key decisions and results is core to what MindManager software provides for our customers," said Scott Raskin, chief executive officer of Mindjet. "Lawyers are a perfect representation of a business where MindManager can make a huge difference in productivity gains."
