Discovery & disclosure overview

Our stock in trade is data - we are here to discover, protect and transform it. Our work in the discovery and disclosure space draws on all three strengths - rapidly locating and acquiring all the potentially relevant data; handling it securely, legally and defensibly; and culling, ordering and analysing it to provide insight and evidence.

The continuing exponential growth of data, plus the proliferation of device types, places huge demands on those who need to access and assess digital material - and to be able to do so quickly, cost-effectively and proportionately.

The advantage of the CCL approach to EDRM*-oriented projects lies in both our breadth and depth: the breadth of our expert industry knowledge which spans the process end-to-end; and the depth of our experience which makes for the most capable and assured project handling.

This way you don’t have the burden of multiple supplier management or having to pick up the pieces when a supplier drops the ball.

However complex, whatever the scale, CCL’s team of discovery consultants, project managers, forensic investigators and data security analysts delivers to a uniformly high standard.

And it is our class-leading forensics capability – we have the broadest ISO 17025 scope of any lab in the UK – that ensures that all subsequent discovery, review and investigation work is built on truly defensible foundations. Evidential integrity is everything.
