At Relativity Fest in Chicago, I interviewed Stephanie Clerkin of Korein Tillery who had just won the Stellar Women in eDiscovery award. Stephanie Clerkin was particularly pleased that the award was based on the votes of the eDiscovery community and not just a committee.
I asked Stephanie Clerkin how she had become involved in eDiscovery. She said that she had worked in finance accounting consulting. There was a logic, she said, in moving from the expert side into legal.
She was now director of litigation support, managing the firm’s discovery and anything related to Relativity. In addition, she worked directly with the lawyers on their eDiscovery matters.
A I asked Stephane Clerkin what excited her most about the new and forthcoming features in Relativity. The new Aero UI came top of her list – everyone likes to complain, she said, and the new UI took care of many of the issues which arise with users.
She was also excited by the new functionality for handling short message data – one of several people who commented on the advantages of this feature.
