eDisclosure\eForensic Investigations

A digital forensic investigation often identifies a large volume of suspect documents and emails from multiple devices. MD5’s eForensics approach combines our expertise in digital forensics, data analytics and electronic review tools, so our commercial clients, or law enforcement or government agencies can recover evidence from a mountain of data in significantly shorter time scales and cost effectively.

eDisclosure service provides our clients with proportionate, defensible outcomes for everyday as well as complex commercial cases. Our experienced eDisclosure team helps our clients to meet the challenge of the increasing volumes of data stored in computers, mobile phones, and the Cloud.
We advise on cost-effective eDisclosure strategies to identify evidence with minimum disruption to the business. As a Result, our advanced data analytics software eliminates unnecessary data and identifies the relevant documents to considerably reduce the volume of documents going forward to review in a cost effective manner.

Reviewers with little experience of eDisclosure find our online review platform intuitive and easy to use. State of the art technology assisted review (TAR) and predictive coding technologies provide the power to deal with high volumes of documents.
