The winner of the disruptive technology of the year award was no-code, AI enabled document automation provider Gavel. Excellence in litigation and data science was won by litigation analytics platform Solomonic. The product of the year went to contract review and drafting provider Henchman. And product of the year – AI was won by contract lifecycle management vendor ContractPodAi.
