Digital forensics

Providing digital forensic services to support all types of investigations and litigation.


As our global exposure to technology continues to grow, the traceable footprint we leave behind on our digital devices grows with it. Consequently, digital evidence is playing an increasingly important role in both civil and criminal investigations.

Case studies

Internal investigation

We performed forensic preservation and analysis of corporate devices to support our client’s internal investigation into suspected IP theft and collusion across their subsidiaries. We developed a scalable working approach to facilitate fluid addition of custodians and devices; this iterative process equipped the client with evidence for custodian interviews into potential collusion whilst also providing assurances regarding their sensitive IP.



Case studies

Criminal defence 

We were instructed by legal counsel in a criminal matter to forensically preserve and analyse social media and cloud repositories in preparation for their client’s defence in legal proceedings. Our analysis uncovered the extent of illegal activity across the accounts and assisted with the attribution of the activity to an individual. This informed counsel as to the nature of the evidence against their client and was essential in informing decisions material to their defence.

Case Studies

Expert witness services

We were instructed as an expert witness by legal counsel to forensically preserve, analyse, and produce an expert witness report on a private client’s devices and online accounts. We produced a Part 35 compliant expert report for use during civil proceedings; this allowed legal counsel to rely on our expert opinions on the use of anti-forensic techniques, data destruction, and evidence tampering in court.

Case studies

Technical Research Projects

We were instructed by overseas legal counsel to assist in the preparation of their defence of criminal proceedings brought against their client. We performed two technical research projects in parallel; researching and testing an online communications platform, and forensic tools and techniques deployed by local law enforcement. This technical knowledge was fundamental for legal counsel to prepare their defence strategy.
