Forensic Neutrals

Computer forensic neutrals can be a highly valuable resource in complex litigation are often sought either pursuant a court order or by counsel and its clients, to collect and analyze data then piecing it together to establish a cohesive, factual story and articulate such findings to the courts, if needed. Rather than each side engaging its own computer forensic expert and engaging in expensive disputes regarding the preservation and interpretation of electronic evidence, the parties can jointly retain a neutral to do so. A computer forensic neutral can then evaluate electronic evidence and issue a formal report, allowing the parties to rapidly resolve disputed factual issues and eliminating the uncertainty and expense associated with a battle of experts.

Elijah’s computer forensic neutrals possess extensive technical and legal knowledge in assisting the court or parties in structuring a reasonable inspection protocol and resolving disputes relating to the collection and preservation and analysis of data to resolve complex privilege issues arising in many types of cases ranging from internal investigations such as employment or contract disputes to theft of trade secrets, patent and copyright infringement, intellectual property and other cases. A computer forensic neutral can perform a variety of helpful roles, which can include among others:

  • Working with counsel and their clients, determine effective and efficient protocols for identification, preservation, review and production of ESI
  • Resolve disputes regarding necessity, scope and methodology for electronic discovery
  • Evaluate confidential and privileged materials without risking waiver
  • Make determinations regarding cost allocation
  • Issue reports, recommendations or orders relating to factual or procedural matters
  • Facilitate the efficient resolution of disputes regarding ESI so that the parties can focus on the merits of each case
