We Partner with Law Firms

Discover Relevant Information for Your Case

You need data from the internet and social media about individuals associated with your case. But how you manage open-source intelligence research at your firm can mean the difference between obtaining information that is defensible and information that is not. Consistent search methods are essential to the outcome of your results. But many law firms do not have a process in place to conduct these investigations in a controlled and consistent manner. You likely have staff going on Google or logging into social media, searching for people, and collecting information. But conducting open-source intelligence research in-house runs the risk that a member of your firm could:
  • Accidentally interact with somebody
  • Identify the wrong person
  • Not find the correct information
  • Log on as themselves, putting the firm and the case at risk
