Forensic collection helps with company acquisition

Challenge

Valuation of an acquisition was stymied when critical design files were found to be missing or deleted. Negotiations could not proceed without recovery of the data.

Solution

In less than a day, two hard drives with 700 GB of data were successfully imaged, with an overview of the recovered information provided by a computer forensics expert.

The Full Story

RSM Tenon, an international provider of accounting and business services in the U.K., hit a snag as it was guiding a client through the acquisition of a competitor. Valuation was disrupted when essential CAD designs and other data could not be retrieved from servers, jeopardizing negotiations.

RSM Tenon turned to LDM Global for the speed and expertise necessary to put negotiations back on track. Within four hours, a forensics team was on site, ready to initiate a full forensic collection.

In less than a day, two hard drives with over 700 GB of data were successfully imaged — including the vital CAD designs that had been deleted.

Next, LDM Global specialists provided the acquirer with expert overview of the information to ensure continuity of negotiations.

When the acquisition was approved, the forensics team returned to create an inventory of laptops, servers, and desktops. The team also facilitated password recovery when necessary for additional review of material.

A lot of moving parts are involved in a successful acquisition — LDM Global can help throughout the process.

You’ll appreciate the extraordinary service LDM Global delivers.

“LDM Global was able to obtain the information that was most valuable to the acquisition. Our client wanted to make sure they had all of the design data … including information that they may have destroyed or deleted.”
