2020 InnovAction Awards:
Winners Announced

The InnovAction Awards celebrate innovation that is novel, disruptive and which provides demonstrable value to the industry, providers, or clients. The awards illustrate what can be created when passionate professionals, with big ideas and strong convictions, are determined to make a difference. 

This is the 17th year the College presented InnovAction Awards. For the first time, awards were made in two categories: the traditional Innovation award, celebrating innovation by an organization, and a new award, the InnovActor award, celebrating an individual innovator for contributions to innovation in the legal ecosystem. 

We are proud to announce this year's winners:

  • Ogletree Deakins with it's client, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers; and
  • Liam Brown, founder and executive chairman of Elevate.
