Providing Expert Digital Forensics & eDiscovery Solutions in Intellectual Property Litigation Matters for Over 18 Years

A company’s confidential information and trade secrets can be among its most valuable assets. ELIJAH has over 18 years of experience providing digital forensics and electronic discovery solutions that assist organizations in safeguarding their patents, trademarks, trade secrets, copyrights, and other valuable intellectual property.

Digital forensic needs in intellectual property litigation arise in surprising contexts. For example, in patent litigation establishing prior can be a key element of claims, and the establishing the date on which an idea was documented can be vital. But how can litigants be sure that the date on a key document is authentic, given the relative ease of altering metadata? ELIJAH can assist in authenticating such records, or investigating and finding evidence establishing the unreliability of date metadata, or perhaps establishing outright fraud that can invalidate a patent entirely. This is just one of many examples of how a computer forensics expert can be a key part of the intellectual property litigation team.
