Problem: Class action dispute
Solution: Served as a forensic neutral in a class action dispute involving a police department that was facing multiple allegations, including creating a hostile work environment. As a forensic neutral, L&F created a forensic protocol that the parties adopted and then performed the forensic investigation, which included collecting and analyzing more than 50 devices in a forensically sound manner. Once this was completed, L&F authored a report documenting our findings. The parties then settled.
Problem: Sensitive data stolen by former employees.
Solution: Appointed by the court as a forensic neutral after four high level employees were accused of stealing. We established that the four employees utilized a cloud storage device, making it nearly impossible to track the files. However, the L&F neutral was able to identify 1,000 files that were under the client’s name on the company’s server. After reporting our findings to the Court, the parties settled the dispute.
Problem: Financial dispute between investment banks.
Solution: Appointed to serve as a forensic neutral in an AAA arbitration on behalf of the panel in a dispute between two investment banks. As the forensic neutral we conducted a forensic investigation that included collecting and analyzing a dozen mobile devices and several Bloomberg terminals. L&F identified malware that demonstrated one of the parties acted in bad faith. After reporting our findings to the arbitration panel, the parties settled.
