Looking for metadata scrubber for legal dept

Looking for metadata scrubber for our legal dept... a total of 20 lawyers.  we currnetly evaluated Workshare, but we have been having major problems with office2007 word integration and support has been horrible, they cannot seem to fix it and it has been more than 1 month and we speak almost daily for a few hours (2 hours).

What else do you recommend? we need something that integrates with office, outlook sending remider, secure, and best of all, easy to use... would be a plus if we can centrally manage, but not a big deal.
Also what do you think of Metadata Assistant from PG... do you have any better ones, if you think Metadata Assistant is good, then which one is better, enterprise or personal edition as I do not seem to get the difference between the two. why would i go with enterprise.

I work for a large law firm also and we are discontinuing use of Workshare DeltaView because it is not compatible with Office 2007, although our firm is now using Office 2003.  However, I have both versions loaded on my PC and DeltaView obviously does not work with 2007 so I would suggest you stop wasting your time on trying to get it fixed  :)

We also use the PCG Metadata Assistant which currently integrates with Outlook 2003.  We haven't had any problems with that program and have been satisfied with it.

Word 2007 does offer the "Inspect Document" feature which removes the bulk of metadata.  However, I have not used it extensively enough to speak on that.  There seems to be a fairly comprehensive white paper found here:

Hope this information helps a little bit....
