About digital and document forensic services

Digital and document forensic investigation is a service provided by LGC, the UK's largest privately owned forensic science service provider, which specialises in analysing  traditional document sources, computers, telephones and other data storage devices to discover evidence.

Document examiners and e-crime forensic experts often work together on complex cases to investigate and analyse questioned documents, fixed and mobile digital data storage media and CCTV footage. The team can also track the movement of suspects, witnesses and victims through cellular networks.

The information recovered and analysed from these sources routinely produces key evidence in court, delivered by expert witness testimony. Digital and document forensics integrates seamlessly with the broad range of services offered by our forensic science teams. Preservation for fingerprints, collection of DNA and dealing with items with potential biohazard contamination is just part of the service offered.

Our experience

LGC was one of the first forensic service providers to develop and dedicate laboratory resources to the analysis of digital evidence and leads the way in the formal accreditation of forensic processes and procedures. Digital and document evidence analysts and investigators come from a rich mix of law enforcement, military, academic and commercial backgrounds.

This expertise is complemented by hundreds more forensic scientists and a wide range of traditional forensic disciplines.
The digital and document forensics teams have many years' experience in working with law enforcement, civil litigation and large corporate organisations. Our service portfolio covers computer and telephone investigation, cell site analysis, audio-visual analysis and questioned document investigation.
