Coronavirus Preparedness At Lighthouse

Paul French

Data Forensics Expert

Paul is an experienced forensics investigator, focusing on planning and executing large-scale, complex electronic collections and investigations. For over twenty years, his body of work includes matters related to spoliation, theft of intellectual property, SEC violations, document recovery/validation, and employee/employer misconduct. He has also authored over seventy-five custom software utilities to convert, search, analyze, and present data from a variety of platforms. 

Prior to joining Lighthouse in 2010, Paul held roles including:

  • Consulted in private-sector electronic forensic matters since 1999, following a thirteen-year career in the US Air Force. Paul’s military training and experience led him to become a seasoned investigator, fulfilling diverse roles in the areas of felony criminal investigations, counterintelligence operations, anti-terrorism training, and forensic computer analysis.
  • Subsequently, at New Technologies, Inc., Paul built and managed NTI’s ediscovery practice, spearheading large-scale ediscovery engagements for law firms, Fortune 1000 corporations, and government entities across the globe.

Paul is an avid tinkerer and DIY aficionado. He sports a sizeable collection of tools for chipping away at that never-ending honey-do list that his wife graciously maintains and grows for him. When he’s not taking apart an opposing expert’s report, you can find him taking apart his home’s electrical system to make the rooms brighter…or network connections faster…alarm sensors more responsive. But Paul’s greatest joy is his wife and two sons – and his trusty Pomeranian “Max.” They all keep him in line and ensure no dull days in the French household!
