About Crossfield Data Services

Crossfield Data Services provides advanced data analytics in support of litigation and government investigations. By utilizing in-house developed software and industry-leading practices, Crossfield can rapidly turn mountains of data into valuable information to support or disprove litigation theories. Structured ESI ("Electronically Structured Information"), are a source of facts which can be rapidly computed by examining large volumes of disparate raw data, often from diverse sources, providing advantages compare to traditional econometric models or sampling techniques often used by other litigation support data analytics practices. Crossfield also offers CFD Timekeeping Analysis, a proprietary toolkit designed to rapidly analyze timekeeping data and ensure compliance with FLSA regulations. Our consultants have applied the toolkit in class action litigations to create valuable information. The CFD toolkit provides support for legal teams to enter settlement negotiations with defensible, reliable information about potential liability. Crossfield's CFD Review, a proprietary e-Discovery processing and review software, runs in a dedicated e-Discovery processing environment to create the most advanced and flexible capabilities in the industry. Given the increasing complexity of e-Discovery, this flexibility reduces the cost and time burden when responding to opposing counsel's e-Discovery requests. Crossfield Data Services is headquartered in McLean, Virginia. For more information visit the company's website.
