Mergers and acquisitions are some of the most significant events a corporation can experience, and although they can add tremendous value, they also are fraught with risk. Due diligence can be critical, and ELIJAH has a particular expertise in Cybersecurity M&A Due Diligence, an often overlooked aspect of whether to proceed with a new merger, acquisition, partner, or deal. Data security is integral to ensuring the integrity of every organization’s operations and reputation. Assessing cybersecurity risks can be as important in evaluating deal value and terms as more commonly investigated factors, such as the quality of earnings, customers, and employees. Cybersecurity M&A Due Diligence when performed properly can help minimize risk, reduce costs, and identify potential deal-breakers. ELIJAH is uniquely positioned to assist companies and their counsel with conducting cybersecurity due diligence.
ELIJAH also can bring to bear its 18 years of experience in digital forensics and electronic discovery solutions in a variety of other M&A contexts. For example, e-discovery can pose huge challenges in mergers and acquisitions. Whether facing daunting second requests from the federal government, or dealing with unexpected claims arising from M&A deals gone wrong, ELIJAH has the experience to handle the largest data collection, search, review, and production efforts, helping provide effective litigation support to efficiently assist in resolivng disputes.
For nearly 20 years, ELIJAH has provided expert digital forensic services in mergers & acquisitions litigation matters. Our expert digital forensic services include:

Although we routinely work on large disputes, many are under the mistaken impression that computer forensics and electronic discovery are not affordable in small cases, or that a more routine business dispute does not warrant digital forensic services. Nothing could be further from the truth. A targeted analysis of key devices often is quite reasonable, and can deliver a return on investment that delivers high value to attorneys and clients.

Finally, longevity matters. We started providing expert digital forensic services four years before the iPhone was invented. We have seen competitors emerge, grow, acquire, divest, and collapse. Some hire huge sales forces, over-promise, and under-deliver, requiring never-ending investments in sales and marketing to find new prospects. ELIJAH has stood the test of time, growing and thriving based almost entirely on repeat business and client referrals. You can trust ELIJAH to deliver the highest levels of responsiveness, judgment, and expertise, because we would not still be here otherwise.

Our cybersecurity experts are also well-versed in providing cybersecurity M&A due diligence consulting services.
ELIJAH has offices nationwide to support client needs. We also can perform almost all digital forensic services remotely, and eDiscovery inherently is a remote service. Geography rarely is an impediment to ELIJAH performing expert computer forensic and electronic discovery services in mergers & acquisitions matters.
Not really. Computer forensics is an older term for the profession. As the diversity of electronic storage devices and accounts grew, most have accepted digital forensics as a more inclusive, accurate term, but many use the two interchangeably.
Absolutely, we wouldn’t have lasted for over 18 years otherwise! Our team has won numerous industry recognitions for best-in-class service offerings, and The Silicon Review named ELIJAH as one of the 50 most trustworthy companies in the United States. Our team has testified extensively in federal and state courts, and have a mile-long list of industry certifications and credentials.
