Innovation Awards Celebrate Trailblazers in Legal Technology
ATLANTA – Troutman Pepper eMerge has received the coveted Best Innovation: Enterprise award from global legal and compliance technology company, Relativity, for its development of the bespoke application Xtractor. The award recognizes a Relativity customer that uses the Relativity platform in creative ways to solve unique challenges.

Xtractor is a custom solution created by eMerge for converting unstructured text from forms – such as invoices, contracts, employment records, and meeting minutes – into structured data, allowing for filtering, sorting, and analysis. The tool significantly reduces the time it takes for attorneys to review documents, saving legal teams hundreds of hours and clients thousands in legal fees.

“The volume of information and the need to analyze it quickly is always increasing. Leveraging AI and machine learning are critical to uncovering key information quickly and discovering the facts. With Xtractor, we are doing just that, and our clients are benefiting,” said Chris Haley, director of legal technology at Troutman Pepper eMerge.

“Our founding directive has been to deliver strategic end-to-end eDiscovery and data management solutions for clients. We are proud to be recognized by Relativity for our efforts to develop applications that leverage technology to improve the speed and precision of certain types of legal work,” said Alison Grounds, eMerge’s managing director.

Relativity’s Innovation Awards program celebrates trailblazing individuals and teams who are building custom solutions, empowering their colleagues or clients, and shaping new paths to benefit the industry and its communities.
