Capture of digital evidence

Cabinet FÉRAL assists you in all procedures involving the seizure of digital evidence.

The solution to a dispute depends on the facts that the parties manage to prove. Therefore, in the absence of elements allowing to prove one’s claims, it is often necessary to proceed with seizures prior to a litigation action on the merits, in particular of digital evidence: connection data, IP address, logs, geolocation, metadata, etc.

Cabinet FÉRAL assists you in all these procedures aimed at seizing digital evidence.

These complex procedures require a perfect command of the applicable law but also a thorough knowledge of technologies and information systems. Indeed, raw digital information is not enough to establish a fact. It is also necessary to be able to demonstrate the integrity and authenticity of the information seized in order to use it as digital evidence.

The lawyers at Cabinet FÉRAL are trained in these procedures, which they are used to using in their litigation practice.
