We know each case or matter has its own unique objectives and goals. At Epiq, we have the knowledge and experience to construct custom processes to fit the specific needs of client projects. Our teams know the common issues faced by clients and will identify and fortify any vulnerable areas in your organization’s case.
Computer Forensics Analysis
Forensic analysis protocols involve much more than a solid set of keywords. There is often much more to consider when successfully reviewing client computer evidence and being properly prepared to counter your opponent’s analysis. Whether it’s analysis of your organization’s data or review of an opponent’s data, expert analysis will help you avoid surprises and stay informed.
Computer Forensics Consulting
Getting involved early in a case gives Epiq experts the opportunity to help you avoid the problems that may impact your organization’s case as you approach trial. We can help you collect and preserve your data, however, our true value is our ability to assist with client evidence and strategy from early investigation through trial.
The Epiq team of data acquisition experts has extensive experience planning and executing successful preservation and collection of even very large and complex data sets. Effective data collection can enhance your organization’s readiness and give you an edge in litigation.

The computer forensics consulting team at Epiq understands the stakes and issues regarding today’s litigation and security environment when data breaches occur. The forensics consulting team is experienced in working with in-house IT and security teams to evaluate a data breach, investigate the scope of the compromise and perform the analysis to answer the important questions legal counsel will need to respond. The stakes are highest when an incident involves protected information. When an organization suspects that a breach has occurred, Epiq can advise on notification obligations, preparing for potential litigation, and advising on remediation efforts.
Expert testimony at depositions and trial is among the most challenging and rewarding work that we do. Epiq experts are experienced at working closely with the litigation team and in preparing the results of analysis for proper presentation to a judge and/or jury and defending that work at deposition.
Technical Deposition Consulting
Lawyers are not necessarily technologists. Epiq experts have extensive experience in assisting the execution of technical depositions of opposing witnesses and experts. Asking the right question is particularly important with a technical witness. Subtle differences in technical terms, semantics, understanding the relevant technology, and interpreting the results of computer forensic analysis all contribute to effective technical depositions.
Enterprise Archive and Legacy Media
Cost-effective analysis and processing of backup tapes, legacy storage arrays, modern enterprise server environments, electronic mail servers, and a suite of other media and computing devices require a flexible approach based on tried and true forensic protocols. Epiq experts excel at crafting the proper forensic protocols for dealing with even the most difficult data sets.
