<p>Majority of AmLaw 200 Law Firms Rely on Interwoven Document Management and Collaboration for Improved Firm-Wide Productivity and Client Service</p>
<p>Top U.S. Law Firms Switch from Competing Systems to Interwoven WorkSite for Matter-Centric Collaboration; Firms Benefit from Single, Unified System to Manage Documents and E-Mails</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia, November 2, 2004 – Interwoven, Inc. (Nasdaq: IWOV), provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions for business, today announced that the majority of the AmLaw 200 law firms (the definitive ranking of the largest American law firms) have adopted Interwoven WorkSite software for document management, collaboration, and e-mail management. Interwoven’s vision and commitment to the legal industry, including its pioneering support for matter-centric collaboration (MCC) and e-mail management, have extended the company’s lead over competing solutions.</p>
<p>Worldwide, firms continue to adopt Interwoven WorkSite to address the increasing challenge of managing documents and e-mails in a single consistent manner. Already, over 800 law firms and 600,000 professionals rely on Interwoven WorkSite for document and e-mail management. With its unique matter-centric approach, WorkSite provides the industry’s most complete offering for law firms to manage critical content and enhance client relationships. WorkSite enables efficient collaboration between attorneys across geographically-dispersed offices and improves attorney and staff utilisation.</p>
<p>AmLaw 200 law firms that have recently switched to Interwoven include: Stinson Morrison &amp; Hecker LLP; Ince &amp; Co; Archer &amp; Greiner, P.C.; and Bricker &amp; Eckler LLP.</p>
<p>“Interwoven’s approach to e-mail management clearly stands out from the competition,” said Athelene Gieseman, CIO at Stinson Morrison &amp; Hecker LLP. “Interwoven’s drag-and-drop features which enable e-mail to be automatically profiled is a huge benefit for us. Attorneys don't have time to profile the large quantities of e-mail they receive, and by making this an automatic process, Interwoven is enabling us to focus on what we do best—providing our clients with unmatched service.”</p>
<p>Interwoven WorkSite 8—the company’s latest version of the product—is based on a new paradigm known as matter-centric collaboration. MCC represents a user-centric design, which, for the first time, enables lawyers and other professional services practitioners to manage matter-related content in the electronic world the way they have done for more than 100 years in the physical world. MCC creates the true electronic equivalent of a case file by consolidating documents, e-mails, billing, contacts, and all other relevant content for any given matter in a single integrated file that is accessible both internally and externally across departments and locations.</p>
<p>“With more AmLaw 200 firms as customers than any other ECM vendor, it’s clear that Interwoven’s innovative matter-centric approach is enabling firms to solve their most challenging content management issues,” said Dan Carmel, vice president and general manager, legal solutions at Interwoven. “Our deep understanding of the legal industry’s needs and proven track record in delivering market-leading solutions is a primary reason why law firms continue to switch from competing solutions to Interwoven WorkSite. We look forward to continuing our strong momentum through new and existing relationships and thought-leadership discussions with leading law firms in the U.S. and worldwide.”</p>
<p>Further supporting Interwoven’s strong momentum and leadership in the legal industry, the company continues to win prestigious legal technology awards worldwide. Most recently, Interwoven was named the top document management solution by the readers of Law Office Computing Magazine in its 10th Annual Readers’ Choice Awards. Interwoven also won two awards in the annual e-LOTIES (Legal Office Technology Innovation Award), a technology award recognising companies in the UK for the latest innovations in e-commerce, knowledge management and Web-based technology for the legal sector. Members of the UK legal community voted Interwoven the industry’s Best E-mail Management solution and Best KM/Information Portal Supplier, based on Interwoven WorkSite 8 software.
