Computer Forensics
Our Dispute analysis & investigations team are supported by computer forensic specialists who are able to provide a range of IT services in conjunction with our wider offering, for example as part of an investigation or expert witness appointment.

IT users leave traces on computers and other digital devices and our computer forensics service tracks those trails to present clients with a clear report of historic activity, either on a specific device or relating to specific individuals. We recognise that critical evidence often needs to be secured immediately and are able to respond quickly to clients’ demands. We are also able to work around clients’ day-to-day operations and work with live systems.  All our work is carried out confidentially and with discretion.

Our expertise covers:

  • Hard disk imaging & analysis;

  • Live forensics (no downtime);

  • Digital document analysis;

  • Deleted data recovery;

  • Password tracking;

  • Imaging and analysis of removable media, such as USB sticks, DVD’s;

  • Imaging and analysis of other electronic devices, including mobile phones, iPod and iPads.


Dispute Advice
When business or personal interests are under the scrutiny, you will need professional support to navigate through the process.  It may be the case that your organisation has suffered from fraud or corruption, or is looking to reduce its exposure.

We provide businesses and private individuals with a full service, drawing on experts specialising in computer risk management, actuarial assessments, local and overseas tax investigations, private client tax, corporate finance and counter fraud and bribery. We can advise you and your business separately or in conjunction with your lawyers. A hallmark of our service is our relationship with lawyers and barristers. Our familiarity with the legal process means that we can concentrate on your needs and issues, with a keen focus on bringing solutions to the table.

Counter Fraud And Bribery
Reducing the risk of financial and reputational losses as a result of fraud, bribery and corruption is a critical aspect of global business. In many instances, it is easier to increase profits by reducing fraud rather than increasing productivity or efficiency, with many companies choosing a proactive ‘action not reaction’ approach as opposed to simply investigating fraud once it is discovered. Robust risk management and a sound corporate governance and policy framework will only be successful if it includes a comprehensive strategic and operational approach to countering fraud, bribery and corruption.

Moore offers a range of services designed to help you create and embed a strong anti-fraud/corruption culture and build deterrence/prevention and detection strategies and processes through awareness, training, policies and controls. Unfortunately, there will always be a need for investigations - these should be conducted professionally and cost-effectively without question. We are able to conduct such investigations, gathering evidence to a standard that can be used in criminal, civil, disciplinary and regulatory proceedings.
