CHICAGO, June 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Relativity, a global legal and compliance technology company, announced that nominations for its 2020 Innovation Awards are now open through July 20.
At Relativity Fest, now a free, fully-virtual conference, the company will recognize organizations and individuals who build innovative solutions, break down barriers for technology in the practice of law and move e-discovery forward. Relativity Fest will take place September 21-23 online and registration opens in mid-July.
"Now more than ever, it's critical that we build up our community and celebrate industry innovations and solutions that are making an impact," said Drew Deitch, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Relativity. "Although we can't celebrate in person this year, we're still committed to fostering meaningful connections and shining a spotlight on the amazing and innovative work of the Relativity Community."
The awards are broken out in two primary categories: technology and people. The technology category celebrates organizations that use the Relativity platform in creative ways—solving difficult or unique challenges within and outside e-discovery:
"The Innovation Award contest proved to be a constant motivator to always keep improving," said Andy Webb, e-Discovery Technology Innovation Manager at Kilpatrick Townsend, winner of the 2019 Best Innovation: Law Firm or Corporation. "Winning the award helped validate the effort of those innovations and build confidence that what we're doing is worth the effort. The award definitely sparked a lot of great communication with other law firms, clients and service providers who all saw value in what the application brought to the table."
The people category recognizes individuals who champion legal technology and advocate for those who use, manage and build on top of Relativity:

"My advice to those submitting a nomination this year is to ensure your solution is innovative and competitive—and really convey in your award nomination the passion your people have for the solution they've developed," said Paul Fontanot, National Practice Group Leader of the Forensic and Technology Services team at Clayton Utz, the 2019 Best Innovation: Community Choice winner. "Innovation is really about people rather than technology."
