UHY Advisors Opens New State-of-the-Art Electronic Data Discovery Lab in Houston

HOUSTON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2007 -- UHY Advisors today announced the opening of its newly constructed electronic data discovery lab, a state-of-the-art facility for processing large volumes of electronic evidence and conducting sophisticated computer forensics investigations, at a secure location in downtown Houston.

The lab is unique for its flexibility to be used for both high-volume electronic data discovery -- including data processing, culling with search terms, de-duplication and file conversion -- and complex digital forensics activities. The facility is secured with biometric locks and the evidence storage "vault" is also secured with advanced motion detectors.

"With approximately 90 percent of all business communications now stored in some sort of electronic form, it's crucial for law firms and corporate legal departments to be able to rely on outside professionals who can provide high-quality electronic evidence collection, processing, review and production services from a secure location," said Doug Herman, managing director of UHY Advisors' fast-growing Forensic, Litigation and Valuations Services (FLVS) Group. "Our lab is staffed by a team of four full-time professionals and is capable of uploading up to 50 gigabytes of electronic data every 24 hours. Coupled with our knowledgeable consultants, project managers, forensic investigators and sophisticated digital forensics equipment in the lab, we have the capability to handle all electronic data discovery requirements -- from the pre-filing stage of the case to its successful conclusion -- all in one location."

UHY Advisors' FLVS Group is a national consulting practice that has been successfully working with law firms and in-house law departments for more than 25 years to deliver a comprehensive package of services for litigation consulting, fraud and forensic services, and business valuation.
