- Corporate Legal Department category: Beth Kellermann, litigation e-discovery manager for Apple, who worked her way up from law firm paralegal to head of Apple's e-discovery.
- Private Law Firm category: Florinda Baldridge, director of practice support for Fulbright & Jaworski, honored for building a national department with a focus on cutting-edge technology.
- Government category: Carl Kikuchi, branch chief for the Office of Litigation Support, U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Division, called a trailblazer in litigation support.
- Industry Wide Category: Tom O’Connor, industry consultant, of the Legal Electronic Document Institute, recognized for his commitment and passion to helping the New Orleans legal community rebuild from hurricane Katrina.
The awards were named in honor of Betsy Ann Reynolds, formerly of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, who died in October. They were handed out May 15 at the first International Litigation Support Leaders Conference held in Washington, D.C. (Watch a video of the ceremony.)
