Data Analytics in Litigation and Compliance

Edgeworth data experts identify, assess, and build transactional databases for clients involved in litigation, arbitration, and regulatory compliance matters. We have extensive experience and expertise working with a variety of systems, including decommissioned mainframes, legacy systems, SAP, and Oracle. 

Our experts easily guide clients through the process of constructing large databases for the purposes of litigation or regulatory compliance. We begin by developing a preliminary data management plan, then go through the steps of identifying all potential data that may be required in the litigation, including:

  • The kinds of information needed
  • The time period over which information is available
  • The systems such information is stored in
  • Possible interviews of IT personnel
  • Extraction of data from multiple systems
  • Validation of data
  • Standardization of data, for instance, across multiple databases or companies
