Forensics experts for Dawn Raid Support
Regulatory agencies with oversight over competition laws and corporate criminal investigations have the authority to conduct unannounced searches (a “Dawn Raid”) of documents at a company’s premises and private residences. When a company is subject to a Dawn Raid, data that is held electronically – either locally on premises or sometimes in the cloud – will be seized or forensically imaged for detailed examination by the authorities.
Regulators in the U.S. and abroad recognize the value of technology-assisted review (TAR) workflows as important tools that can prevent massive data dumps and allow them to focus their analysis on critical and relevant data. TAR workflows, defensible processes, and data handling is where Epiq is the best of the best.
For all types of antitrust and competition matters, our data and consulting experts work closely with legal teams to choose the technology tools that best suit the needs of the matter and provide advice on their strategic deployment. These tools, when combined with defensible processes for data processing and review, drive consistent and defensible results, while reducing costs significantly.
