A week after closing Relativity Fest—and a day after fueling up on candy—we’ve mostly recovered our energy after four days of learning and jiving with the e-discovery community. What we’ve come away with this year is some serious awe for what professionals in this space are accomplishing every day.
All week long, we heard stories of lightning fast and impressively adaptive workflows that are tackling the toughest challenges today’s data landscape can present. The technology helps, sure—but it’s the creativity of the people using the software that really speaks volumes about innovation in our space.
Today, speed and flexibility are not just in demand for e-discovery—they’re a matter of course. Our community is faster, stronger, and smarter than ever. Check out these stories, presented during our founder and CEO Andrew Sieja’s Relativity Fest keynote, to see how.

While Daryl Teshima, senior managing director, and Wendy King, managing director, from FTI were on stage, the takeaway was that unflinching support means real success. With a huge team and an exceptionally challenging project portfolio, FTI is making high-touch e-discovery their mission.
