Deloitte Discovery

Most of today’s companies would not be in business without the technology that allows them to instantly create, send, search, retrieve, and store data. However, this benefit can also be a burden, particularly when there is a need to manage and review that data in the course of litigation or investigation.

An entire business dispute, commercial investigation or multimillion pound litigation may hinge on identifying when a single piece of data was communicated, generated, altered or deleted, by and to whom, and under what circumstances.

The process of collecting, reviewing, and producing electronic and/or hard copy documents to uncover the facts relating to illegal acts, bad business practices, or fraud, can be time consuming, costly, and exceptionally high risk.

How we can help

The Deloitte Discovery team is a global group of over 200 specialists assisting clients in local, national and international cases.

Our highly experienced professionals assist clients in addressing the technological challenges of today’s complex investigation and litigation environments by implementing thoroughly practical approaches supported by specialist technology and processes.
