Interview: Tony Chan of iCourts on winning Best Innovation Provider Award at Relativity Fest

At Relativity Fest every year, I get the opportunity to interview the winners of the Relativity Innovation Awards, whose purpose is to “recognize organizations and individuals who build innovative solutions, break down barriers for technology in the practice of law, move e-discovery forward, and take Relativity to the next level.”

Among the 2019 Innovation Award winners was Tony Chan, Director, Development Solutions at iCourts in Sydney. His role at iCourts involves talking to clients to identify their pain points and develop solutions to fix them. I asked him about the award – what it was for and what it meant to him and to iCourts.

Tony Chan said that the award was for an app which allowed reviewers to work from anywhere – they could stop work on their desktop and take it up again “on the train, on the ferry or on the bus”. Users can also highlight and redact with an Apple Pen.

I asked Tony Chan what was most exciting about the new announcements from Relativity. Like others, he said that the new Aero UI was the best forthcoming development – “smooth and crisp”, he said.
