Evidence, made easy

The world’s data increases exponentially every year. As data processing speeds and bandwidths increase, innovative tools are conceived for creating, sharing and consuming data, and data creators and users continue to connect globally. A number of specific catalysts are driving this data expansion: email, smartphones and social networks increase data volumes enormously and they will continue to grow with the future introduction of 5G networks, and by 2030, 6G networks with speeds of  up to 1 terabyte per second.

What does this mean for your business? If you are facing a dispute or an investigation, it means you will have to collect more information, from more places and in more forms than ever before. Getting to the bottom of a case once involved reviewing a few boxes of hard copy documents. Today it requires combing through terabytes of data representing millions of documents.

We regularly represent buyers and sellers contending with SIRs. This entails the mobilization of resources to ensure that millions of records are collected, processed and reviewed in short timeframes. Utilizing data analytics and deep experience in contending with SIRs, we are able to respond on time and cost-efficiently with minimal burden on our clients.
