  • Retained as a third-party e-discovery expert by the special committee to the Board of Directors for a large communications company in a $500 million trade secret suit. Provided an audit and review of the defensibility of e-discovery procedures, and an affidavit of the findings.
  • Assisted a large, diversified energy provider with the analysis of its risk exposure, legal preservation process and legal hold compliance program. The effort resulted in recommendations for policy, procedure and technology improvements for the company's legal notification and data preservation methodologies.
  • Led a team investigating a phishing email breach to understand the breadth and depth of compromised accounts and potential leakage of personally identifiable information (PII).
  • Led forensic data analysis for a large Canadian bank in response to a regulatory inquiry by the Ontario Securities Commission regarding alleged overcharging of fees to investment clients.
