We Partner with In-House Legal

Discover Relevant Information on Claimants

When dealing with general litigation, product liability, or class action lawsuits against your company, your legal team needs to quickly identify claimants for depositions, settlements, or other proceedings. You need open-source intelligence to accurately assess those claimants quickly. But collecting, analyzing, and preserving data on subjects in a manner that conforms to the rules of evidence takes time and expertise. That research can also be costly, and it can be difficult to maintain a consistent process across offices. Conducting open-source intelligence research in-house also runs the risk that a member of your team could:
  • Accidentally interact with somebody
  • Identify the wrong person
  • Not find the correct information
  • Log on as themselves, putting the company and the case at risk
