Briggs & Veselka Acquires Pathway Forensics

Houston-based Briggs & Veselka (FY16 net revenue of $35.4 million) has acquired Pathway Forensics, a digital forensics firm specializing in computer forensics, eDiscovery processing and hosting, data analysis, corporate investigations and expert witness testimony.

“We believe this will be a great partnership because of our similar cultures and complimentary skill sets,” says Sheila Enriquez, leader of the Briggs & Veselka forensic, valuation and litigation support practice and the firm’s consulting group. “Pathway has received numerous kudos statewide for their computer forensics, corporate investigations, expert witness, and eDiscovery services, and they will be an excellent resource for our clients and the law firms we serve.”

“Pathway is excited to join a firm with such a remarkable market reputation, and with such a high degree of client loyalty. And our cultures align well, which was a critical point for me and our management team,” says Noel Kersh, partner with Pathway. “We’re excited about the ability to collaborate on litigation matters as well as the middle market corporate clients that Briggs & Veselka serves.”

The firm leadership brings more than 75 years of experience in conducting digital forensics acquisitions and analysis on a variety of cases involving business and employment disputes, investigating theft of intellectual property, compliance with discovery requests, family law, harassment, in-house investigations for large corporations, copyright infringement and criminal cases.

In addition to Kersh, Pathway principal, Dustin Hager, directors Chris Graham and Dennis Williams, and the staff, will be part of the new organization.
