DATA MINING & ANALYTICS

In the information age, everything around us has the potential to be data. We are only limited by how we leverage such information. As individuals, we generate innumerable records of when, how, and with whom we live, work, play, and communicate. Corporations and other organizations house vast troves of data including financial records, customer information, phone logs, and security systems. And, governments are one of the largest producers of data, maintaining millions of records that are relevant to health care, real property, corporate governance, and transparency.

Our Data Mining & Analytics team can help with these problems and many others – no task is too challenging.

High stakes litigation and fraud detection are not only reliant upon such data, but also involve huge repositories of communications, documents, and third-party expert reports. Gryphon Strategies’ data team helps its clients sift through this disparate data and leverage that information to gain the insights necessary to support due diligence cases, fraud investigations, and litigation engagements. Here’s how that process might look for you:

Identify, Request, & Acquire

First, we work with you to determine what information and data will be useful. We will start by reviewing what data you may already have in hand. That process will likely go beyond thinking about traditional data (e.g., spreadsheets and databases) to include communications, customer information, and even material hidden in text and documents. If appropriate, we might then supplement your data with information we have acquired from public, social media, and other relevant sources. If the case permits, we can also help you draft subpoena or information requests so that we get the information we need in the most useable format, saving both time and money. Our team is also experienced in successfully circumventing opposing counsel’s opposition to such information requests.

Wrangle & Clean

Next, we put that information into a workable structure. Often, data does not come perfectly formatted, whether by accident or opposing counsel’s design. This often means identifying information from images, combining tens of thousands of spreadsheets, or pulling relevant text from emails, documents, or PDFs. We then clean, filter, and organize the data so that we can then develop the best insights for our clients.

Analyze & Interpret

Finally, we leverage the compiled information to develop relevant analytics and fact-patterns. Those insights may include identifying trends and outliers from one or multiple datasets, outlining a subject’s complex network based off communications and other relevant information, or even mining social media data for posts containing sensitive information. Although this may sound like a complicated process, rest assured that we will deliver our findings to you in a non-technical, easy-to-understand format.
