An East Coast law firm recently called upon the experts at iDiscovery Solutions (iDS) to help a pharmaceutical client investigate the suspected theft of intellectual property after several employees left to start a competing business. One of the specialties iDS is known for is the depth and breadth of performing computer and digital forensics analysis, and they were called upon to do so in this matter. After establishing that intellectual property had been stolen, iDS next needed to help the court better understand digital evidence. At trial, the iDS testifying expert carefully explained – in terms that were easy for all to understand – the processes behind investigating digital information, the details that can be found in metadata, and the specific findings of this case. Based on the independent work of iDS, it was shown that the defendants stole intellectual property, were found guilty at trial, were ordered to pay the plaintiff monetary damages, and were required to stop using the former employer’s intellectual property.
