Stroz Friedberg, Inc., the leading global consulting firm for managing digital risk and uncovering digital evidence, has opened its newest U.S. office at 101 Montgomery Street in downtown San Francisco. Leading the firm's San Francisco operations is David E. Garrett, who joined Stroz Friedberg as a Managing Director. Mr. Garrett will supervise a specially trained team of incident first-responders and a state-of-the-art computer forensics lab capable of handling the most sophisticated digital evidence investigations, as well as large, complex electronic discovery projects.

Previously Senior Corporate Counsel for Oracle Corporation, Mr. Garrett has extensive experience in intellectual property litigation and electronic discovery. At Oracle, he successfully resolved hundreds of commercial and intellectual property matters. Mr. Garrett also spearheaded the company's global electronic discovery initiative, where he implemented new technologies to increase efficiencies and lower costs.

Established in 2000, Stroz Friedberg has been helping corporations and government agencies deal effectively with a wide range of critical matters, such as theft of intellectual property, major data breaches from lost laptops or criminally intent hackers, response to malicious code distribution, online fraud, and cyber extortions, as well as traditional commercial investigations.

The new San Francisco site is Stroz's ninth U.S. office and its eleventh globally, including two U.K. offices in London and Leeds. With the opening of this new West Coast location, Stroz Friedberg expands its world-class services and international network to top law firms and corporations with operations in California and beyond.
