Our team understands that computer forensics may be used for a variety of tasks, such as finding the “smoking gun” e-mail, proving deliberate spoliation by an opposing party, or trying to make sense of suspicious computer activity on the day a key employee departed. We specialize in focused, aggressive computer investigations into intrusions, internal misconduct, phishing scams, malicious software and other digital attacks.
Our cyber investigators routinely synchronize their work with our firm’s more traditional investigative resources, such as surveillance, research and interviews. This provides our clients with a formidable synergy of investigative skills that sets us apart from other agencies that operate only without or within the digital arena.
We regularly advise attorneys and corporate clients on preserving, analyzing and utilizing computer evidence in litigation, regulatory proceedings, presentations to law enforcement and governmental investigations. We perform all forensic investigations under the assumption that court testimony will be required and adhere to law enforcement standards of chain of custody and evidence storage. Our investigators have experience as court-appointed experts and in giving testimony under cross-examination.
