Case Studies

Problem: Policy dispute.

Solution: Hired as an expert witness in a dispute with an insurance company as to whether it had to honor a policy our client had purchased to protect against insider threats and theft. Our forensic expert analysis established that the employee was a critical bad actor in a $100,000,000+ fraud. L&F testimony was instrumental in forcing the insurance company to offer a favorable settlement to our client.

Problem: Needed expert witness to testify on collection practices.

Solution: L&F was retained in an MDL multibillion dollar dispute to prove why the plaintiff’s requests for discovery were unreasonable and unduly burdensome. One of our team members testified in court and provided an expert declaration. The discovery requests were then dismissed based on our report.

Problem: Needed search protocol in multibillion dollar dispute.

Solution: L&F was retained in one of the largest recent litigations in the United States to create ESI search protocol. The protocol we created for litigation was deemed acceptable by both sides and was adopted with minimal edits made.
