AnswerBase uses Recommind Inc.'s MindServer Legal search engine to leverage the firm's data rich resources and enable Morrison & Foerster attorneys to pinpoint precedents for a particular transaction, identify attorneys with specific expertise, and access detailed client and matter information.

Linking information from across numerous resources, AnswerBase allows the firm's attorneys to develop contextual understanding of each document, person, and matter. For example, attorneys can search for documents, find topical materials related to a client's inquiry, and quickly navigate to the most relevant information to address a client's needs. Alternatively, attorneys can locate experienced colleagues through the people directory, and within minutes collaborate with attorneys who have worked on similar matters and legal issues.

With more than 1,000 lawyers in the world's technology and financial centers, Morrison & Foerster is now easily able to share firmwide resources. By giving attorneys and staff simple, yet powerful access to the firm's collective knowledge, AnswerBase supports the firm's mission: to deliver success for our clients.
