Computer Forensics and Expert Witness ServicesOur extensive experience in computer forensic investigations

Computer ForensicsOur work in computer forensic investigations and expert witness services includes participation in arbitrations and both civil and criminal defence court cases.

We assist in Anton Piller orders, roughly analogous to a civil search warrant. We work with legal teams prior to carrying out the orders to determine the type of computer program and data files pertinent to the order, the distinctive identifying characteristics of these computer files and the most likely locations they might be found. During execution of the orders, we search for and locate the sought-after computer files and obtain copies for the legal team.

We analyze a wide variety of computer data files such as e-mail, instant message logs and word processing documents to determine if they appear to be genuine or fabricated. We can search for computer data files thought to be deleted and can often recover apparently deleted files using specialized tools.

We analyze accounting databases to locate suspicious transactions. We review related business financial data such as customer databases and price lists for evidence of their unauthorized duplication and use. We investigate the data trails of e-commerce systems, including web servers, tracking usage and analyzing logs. We can review and analyze the operations of computer applications software.
