Fixed Quoting Structure

CYFOR understand that producing information for review and analysis in response to disclosure requirements can be consuming and expensive. With over a decade of experience in eDiscovery we know it’s essential to have a handle on costs. That is why we provide transparent, concise and easy to digest fixed price quotations. This not only helps your clients predict costs but also enables the eDiscovery process to be applied to smaller cases on an investigatory basis.

eDiscovery Technology

Strong partnerships and full certification with ‘best of breed’ eDiscovery software vendors such as Relativity and Nuix, enables CYFOR to provide a full suite of services for the disclosure of electronically stored information (ESI). This full spectrum of review platforms allows for vast amounts of data to be processed and disseminated in the most complex of investigations.

Secure Infrastructure

We understand the importance of security in both our corporate practices and in the work undertaken for clients. That is why our extensive infrastructure is ISO 27001 accredited, the internationally recognised framework for best practices in Information Security.
