LexTrado is an independent firm specialising in e-discovery services, hosting of sensitive data in encrypted and highly secure environment, hosting of ICT systems for companies in business rescue or under liquidation for financial wind-up and digital escrow services. Having more than 10 years’ experience in the Computer forensic field and identifying various additional services that support the legal processes involved in various areas of litigation, a need was identified to incorporate Lextrado EDS (Pty)Ltd to follow international trends in litigation where electronic data is concerned.

E-discovery is becoming much more important in the context of civil litigation.
