Improved Legal Services for Your Clients Using Social Media and Internet Tools


12:30-1:30 p.m. CDT

The Internet has transformed communication,s and now lawyers must learn how to navigate through social media sites and use search engines to provide proper legal services to clients whether dealing with estate planning, real estate, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property or related litigation. This webcast will provide specific examples of searching for data on the Internet including Facebook, Google, Twitter and more regarding your clients, parties involved in transactions and litigation and how best to use this Internet data to provide improved legal services.

Gardere's Peter Vogel will be leading the webcast. Vogel is a trial partner at the Firm and is chair of the Internet, eCommerce and Technology Industry Team. Before practicing law, he was a systems programmer on mainframes, received a master's degree in computer science and taught graduate courses in information systems and operations research. His blog covers contemporary technology topics.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
