Sutherland, Asbill & Brennan LLP Selects Recommind's Mindserver Search™ for Firmwide Knowledge Access

Firm Uses Industry's Leading Enterprise Search Solution to Provide Information Workers With Instant, Accurate Access to Information, Matters and Expertise

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - July 14, 2010) -  Recommind, the leader in search-powered information management solutions for enterprises and law firms, announced today that Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP, a law firm known for resolving sophisticated legal issues for many of the world's largest companies, has selected Recommind's MindServer Search for next-generation information access. Sutherland is using MindServer Search to power and provide the back-end infrastructure for 'Ask Sutherland,' the firm's new proprietary search portal, which makes information and work product exponentially more usable and actionable across the organization.

MindServer Search combines sophisticated, concept-based search technology with a simple user interface to provide highly accurate results that are tailored to the information requirements of the organization and its individual users. Building the Ask Sutherland portal on top of MindServer Search has enabled Sutherland to instantly crawl, index and access information from its office file shares, document management libraries, time & billing systems, docketing systems, Microsoft SharePoint™ and additional sources.

"After 30 years of practice as an oil trading lawyer, the number of agreements and documents I have drafted number in the thousands," said Beverly Rudy, partner, Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP. "I use Ask Sutherland at least five times a day because it enables me to quickly find precedent clauses in agreements that I don't even remember having drafted until I review the search results. This tool is invaluable."

To further supplement the information access and knowledge management efforts of the Ask Sutherland portal, the firm has also implemented Recommind's Matters & Expertise™ module. Matters & Expertise provides a comprehensive, firm-wide view of matters, deals, cases and experience, enabling employees to identify colleagues with expertise in or knowledge of a specific query within a matter of seconds.

MindServer Search is built on Recommind's patented CORE™ (Context Optimized Relevancy Engine) platform, a fully automated information management layer, which automatically understands content in context. The CORE platform uses the most advanced and accurate concept-based search and categorization technology available and seamlessly and securely integrates structured and unstructured data. By building targeted solutions on top of the CORE platform, customers of all sizes and industries are able to find and process the exact information they need to immediately take action, enjoying faster, more accurate and efficient eDiscovery, regulatory compliance, collaboration and knowledge management solutions.
