Welcome to Aperio Digital Investigations

Computer forensics is a major discipline. It's not just about computers anymore. Computer forensics, or more accurately digital investigations, involves more than just a desktop PC. Laptops, sat navs, mobile phones, digital cameras, fax machines - all have a data history which can be traced and recovered; they all tell their own story. But understanding that story and telling it in plain English needs experience and skill. The Aperio team has an enviable record and an unrivalled skill-set, honed through many years of experience.

Can we help you?

No matter if you are prosecution or defence, plaintiff or respondent, a law firm, a business or other organisation, large or small - we can help you. Just call us for free, no obligation advice.
