What are Production & Anton Piller Orders?

Anton Piller Orders (APO’s for short) are the civil search warrants in Canada that allow for the search and seizure of evidence from a defendant without giving prior notice. Obtaining this order was usually quite difficult in the past but now that digital evidence has become one of the cornerstones of forensics, things have changed.

Production Orders force the custodian of the information or evidence to submit or provide access to the authorities to said evidence. We have a vast experience with the legal requirements for these orders to be submitted, and we’ve managed to get them every time we’ve had to.

Combined with the rigorous data extraction and preservation methods we use, as well as the strict methodology we employ when obtaining Production & Anton Piller Orders, we can guarantee that the opposing counsel won’t have anything to retort. Our methodology is accepted and used by the FBI and RCMP, after all.

Efficient way of obtaining Production & Anton Piller Orders

Over the years, we’ve found that getting a court of law to issue an APO is fairly easy, provided we minimize as much as we can the disruption to the defendant. In other words, rather than seizing an electronic device from the defendant’s premises, we will make forensic copies of the relevant data and investigate it thoroughly.

This way, we will diminish the chances that the opposing counsel would express concerns about our invasive actions over the defendant’s private property. If we only seize the imaged data taken from a device, and not the device itself, getting an APO is all but guaranteed.

Moreover, using data-only forensic investigations provides yet another benefit – the objectivity of our investigation can’t be criticized. We have peerless data extraction and preservation methods that no court of law in Canada can be suspicious or doubtful about.

Demonstrable risks that evidence might be tampered with

A court of law will recommend an Anton Piller Order when evidence is brought forth that suggests relevant case evidence might be withheld or even destroyed in the meantime. We can easily make that risk a demonstrable one by adhering to objective forensic techniques and pertinent remarks during the court case.

The TCS Forensics team will cooperate with HR departments, CEOs, and even individuals, provide key information and recommendations, and play an important part in getting an APO or Production Order. Thanks to our long-standing experience with forensic digital investigations related to Anton Piller Orders and Production Orders, we know exactly how to get a court of law to issue them.

A Production Order is even more easily obtained – it only requires that we demonstrate the necessity of specific evidence to the objectivity and successful completion of a court case.
