Forensic Recovery, LLC is a boutique consulting firm providing clients with services and expert witness testimony related to computer forensics, electronic discovery and information security. As the use of technology increasingly integrates into our daily lives, the resulting digital footprint continues to expand. Our analysts and experts are experienced in identifying and interpreting electronic data for use in corporate litigation, criminal investigations, and civil matters. Introducing potential sources of digital evidence to a client is one of our most appreciated strengths.
Our Incident Response engagements typically begin because a client believes their computer network has been compromised by data thieves or social engineers. We have the ability to determine if an actual incident took place, identify its cause and scope, and assist with the remediation of the attack. The offering of preemptive and post-incident security hardening services is a natural progression as a result of handling these types of incidents.
Forensic Recovery understands the challenges of being a business owner, so we make recommendations to improve the security of client data and reduce risk exposure while considering budgets and company goals.

Common Case Scenarios
- Intellectual Property TheftAn employee or executive leaves an employer to start a new company or work for a competitor. The previous employer ends up in a legal dispute because the employee took with him client contacts, confidential trade secrets and intellectual property, or left a backdoor for remote access to the network at a later time. We can help determine how the employee acted prior to leaving the company or at the onset of litigation.
