Investigations
Thousands of investigations all over the world

Locate relevant data by collecting, preserving, and harvesting data from mobile devices, hard drives, and backup tapes (e.g. deleted, hidden, lost or encrypted files) in a wide range of formats and media, and preserving data in a forensically sound fashion (e.g. locked, fireproof safe for evidentiary).

Detection of Spoliation
Discover evidence of spoliation in dozens of disputes and submit expert reports used by the parties

Analyze devices and accounts to determine who created what data, if any data was deleted, and if specific aspects of data were modified. Recover other necessary details surrounding modified or destroyed data or accounts.

Expert Witness
Patent, Copyright, and Trademark Disputes, Theft of Trade Secrets, Class Actions, Contract and Business Disputes, Regulatory Actions, Cyber Stalking, Malpractice Dispute

Assist the court in understanding the technology relevant to a case and make recommendations regarding forensic issues specific to the dispute, especially where voluminous materials need to be reviewed or inspections outside of court facilities are necessary.

Forensic Data Recovery
Utilize patent pending hardware and software

Recover encrypted documents, hard drives, compressed files, and storage containers lost during an incident. Utilize patent pending hardware and software to recover data deleted by an employee or by a rare data-wiping virus, which can make a machine unable to operate. Our data recovery tools can repair partition or file structure, inspect the damaged file structure, and attempt to pull files out.

Cloud Forensics and Social Media
Consulted, testified, and advised in 1000+ disputes

Locate and recover deleted or partially disrupted files in private and public cloud computing environments using off-the-shelf and patent pending cutting edge software.  Analyze social network platforms, establish authenticity of social media, and translate technical findings into digestible information for lawyers.

 

Case Studies

Problem: Internal fraud investigation.  

Solution: Retained as an expert in a large consolidated products liability case. Found that certain employees had not adequately preserved and had even destroyed key evidence in the case. Produced a report that parties used to compel a favorable settlement.

Problem: Employee embezzlement.

Solution: Retained to investigate $2 million embezzlement. Using predictive coding to mine the data, L&F experts forensically analyzed the banking app on a mobile device to prove fraud. The L&F team wrote an expert witness report clearly explaining their findings. The client won the case, recovering all lost money. 

Problem: CEO was breached.

Solution: Retained by an aerospace team to remediate a breach of their private cloud. An L&F team member was onsite at the data center located in the Middle East within 24 hours of the cyber incident. L&F identified the breach in the private cloud, and spearheaded the remediation efforts that included cleaning and recovering dozens of servers that hosted critical and essential data in the company’s private cloud.
