Firm’s LitSmart® AutoTasker Named “Best Innovation: Law Firm or Corporation”

WINSTON-SALEM, NC (October 24, 2019) -- Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton is excited to announce that its LitSmart® AutoTasker app has been awarded the “Best Innovation: Law Firm or Corporation” at the 6th Annual Relativity Innovation Awards ceremony. The awards ceremony concluded the 10th annual Relativity Fest user conference hosted in Chicago.

Andy Webb, Senior E-Discovery Analyst at Kilpatrick Townsend, was on-stage to accept the award from Relativity’s Director of Strategic Partnerships, Drew Deitch. The LitSmart® AutoTasker app was developed to address a need to streamline and automate routine manual tasks that occur across all Relativity workspaces and ensure consistency of processes. With the LitSmart® AutoTasker, typically manual tasks are customized and run automatically once data has been loaded without the constant oversight and interaction of a LitSmart team member, resulting more consistent and efficient workflows and a measurable decrease in time spent on routine manual tasks.

“This is an incredible honor for our entire team and a recognition of the dedication and hard work it took to develop a solution to a very real need within our software environment,” said LitSmart E-Discovery Team Leader and Kilpatrick Townsend Partner, Craig Cannon. “Kilpatrick Townsend is proud of our commitment to client service and innovation. It’s great to know that our efforts are rewarded as the best in our category.” 

The LitSmart® AutoTasker app was one of several Innovation Awards announced on-stage during the awards ceremony, which is designed to celebrate the organizations and individuals who build innovative solutions, break down barriers for technology in the practice of law, and move the e-discovery industry forward. This year’s awards winners were selected by a panel of judges which included Robert Ambrogi, Peg Gianuca, Mary Pat Poteet, and Relativity’s Keith Carlson (Chief Technology Officer), Amanda Fennell (Chief Security Officer) and Aileen Tien (Relativity Trace Specialist).

“I want to congratulate Andy and the rest of Kilpatrick team on developing an app that is sure to save Relativity users time and resources when completing routine review tasks,” said Drew Deitch, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Relativity. “Being recognized as an Innovation Awards finalist for five consecutive years is an impressive feat and I’m happy that they get to take home the award thanks to their LitSmart® AutoTasker app.”
