Orrick Recognized for Innovation in 2021 Legalweek Leaders in Tech Law Awards


Law.com’s 2021 Legalweek Leaders in Tech Law Awards recognized Orrick’s innovation in pro bono initiatives and litigation for the tech sector, as well as naming Chief Innovation Officer Wendy Curtis a finalist for Law Firm Innovator of the Year.

Wendy heads an innovation team that last year launched The Observatory, a pioneering platform for legal departments to analyze hundreds of legal technologies on the market, including some developed by Orrick.

We also were finalists for Innovation in Pro Bono for our founding of a first-in-the-industry Racial, Social and Economic Justice fellowship program, which this year partnered six of our associates with organizations making a social impact. In addition, we were recognized as one of the top Tech Enabled Litigation Departments of the Year for our successful analytics-driven work for Oracle defeating a pay equity case brought by the U.S. Department of Labor.
