Colm Murphy, Espion Forensics & eDiscove

Espion has built a highly qualified and experienced international team with multi-jurisdictional expertise

26 October 2012. Leading information security firm Espion, is on track to become one of the largest Forensics & eDiscovery service providers in Europe with the opening of new offices in Brussels, to support the growing demand for its services from international law firms with eDiscovery & Digital Forensics needs in Europe.

In addition to working with top in-house counsel, law firms, corporations and government agencies in Ireland, Espion has built a highly qualified and experienced international team with multi-jurisdictional expertise capable of navigating the obstacles associated with collecting and moving data from European countries (i.e. European Data Protection Legislation and European Banking Secrecy laws).

Tom Brock, former senior eDiscovery consultant at Capital Legal Solutions (now Capital Novus), joins Espion to spearhead European expansion and brings more than 15 years of experience working in law firms and service providers in North America and Europe. In recent months Espion has made six senior appointments to support its growing portfolio of international clients.

Colm Murphy, Espion Forensics & eDiscovery director, says: “The global eDiscovery market is expected to rise 275% from 2010 to 2017 and we have seen demand for our specialist services skyrocket in recent years.

Our global knowledge, ability to mobilise quickly across Europe to ensure US clients have a local resource, combined with our unrivalled experience and superior service delivery will ensure Espion is perfectly placed to service this growth opportunity.”

Espion boasts a successful track record in high profile international cases. Recent engagements include delivering a large scale eDiscovery project around the exposure of Italy’s largest bank to the activities of a notorious US Ponzi scheme fraudster. The company also executed one of the biggest litigation-based eDiscovery projects of its kind ever carried out in Austria spanning more than 20 million electronic documents.

Espion was appointed as the eDiscovery expert for several pan-European parties taking action against a multinational bank’s $1billion+ in exposures from fraudulent activities of a Ponzi fraudster. This was one of the largest cases of its kind (in value and scale of discovery) in Europe spanning millions of electronic documents relating to litigation before the Commercial Court in Ireland.

Espion investigations are carried out in an ISO 27001 certified laboratory to ensure that both data security and client confidentiality is maintained to the highest standards at all times.
