What our clients say…

“We would like to thank you for all your assistance, in particular Chris Watts whose report effectively tipped the balance in favour of our client”. 

Wood Law, Isle of Man

“Griffin have provided our clients with excellent IT forensics services, both in terms of their expertise and their ability to align their work with client requirements in ways in which non-experts can understand. They are very user friendly whilst being thorough and professional. We have also been impressed by their willingness to work at pace in difficult jurisdictions.”

Chris Swart, Squire Patton Boggs

“I have worked with Chris Watts and his team at Griffin Forensics since 2006, and before that when Chris was employed at Vogon International. Chris’s ability to locate and recover material from computers and telephones has been fundamental to winning a number of cases over that time. He is a first port of call to capture data by imaging hardware. He is fast reacting and value for money – but above all friendly to deal with. He explains digital evidence in everyday language and makes a busy solicitor’s life simpler. I would highly recommend him.”

Hamish Cameron-Blackie, GBH Law

“Griffin provided extremely professional expert witness and eForensic services during our cross-border cyber fraud dispute. Indeed, the quality of Griffin’s analysis went a long way towards achieving a desirable conclusion to this multimillion dollar dispute.”

Eleanor Coates, Clyde & Co LLP

“Just thought that I would drop you a line to thank you for recovering so much of the data I thought was lost. The discs I picked up from you yesterday contain pretty much everything that we needed, and a great deal more than I expected to get back. Many, many thanks for all your help and kind attention to our requirements. We wish you and your Company all the best for the future – your service is second to none.”

Keith Davies (Buckingham)

“Having used the services of Griffin Forensics on both a legal claim and a PC problem they have been a pleasure to work with. They are very good at communication and deliver a technical report in a manner that is easily understood. Promised deliveries are met. All members of the team are friendly and helpful”

JC (Herefordshire)

“The memories that I thought I had lost – have been restored, something I did not think was possible. You have made my day and thank you so very much for being there!”
