If one thing has become clear as we prepare for the second-annual Relativity Innovation Awards at Relativity Fest, it’s that successful e-discovery is about versatility and creativity. Case teams are tackling the industry’s toughest cases and meeting complex challenges by building unique applications on Relativity, and we’re excited to showcase them.
