Extract from Melissa Tatham’s article “The 2021 Ediscovery Hero Awards is Almost Here!”
What is the Ediscovery Hero Awards?
Resolutions. Fresh starts. New gym memberships. The Super Bowl… Academy Awards…snow! They’re all the telltale signs of January and the arrival of winter. For those of us in the world of ediscovery, this time also typically signals the annual pilgrimage to New York City for a week of networking, learning and sharing as part of LegalWeek – one of the largest gatherings of legal industry professionals seeking to explore new business, regulatory, and technology trends. For the past 4 years the Ediscovery Hero Awards, hosted by Zapproved, has gotten the party started with a night of celebration, awards, food, and drinks that brings together some of the industry’s best and brightest.
Well, in 2020 things didn’t always look so bright and we learned that being “together” means more than just sharing physical space. The word took on an entirely new meaning as we dug in as an industry and leveraged the power of collaboration to lift each other up. We understood that it meant joining forces to embrace today’s tough challenges and explore new ideas around how to solve them. We came together to share our individual skills and achieve overall success. And yes, we got really, really good at coming together using Zoom.
