Terry Chopiuk is a Partner in Compliance, Forensics and Intelligence. Based in Los Angeles, Terry focuses on computer forensics and electronic discovery. He has overseen the operational set-up of Control Risks’ Technology global service line, including the design and set-up of each of our data centers used for data processing and hosting. He continues to coordinate our global computer forensics needs, and manage our operations team.

Terry works closely with our AMLAW 100 and Fortune 500 company clients in order to provide technical direction in dealing with their complex data mapping, data collection, and electronic Discovery needs. He has consulted on FCPA, second request, and litigation matters spanning multiple jurisdictions; China, Brazil, France, India, and Vietnam, to name a few.


Highlights of Terry’s experience include:
  • Managed the data processing of hundreds of terabytes of data for one of the largest FCPA investigations ever conducted, involving on-site installations and operations teams in Germany and China.
  • Oversaw the targeted data restoration and processing of several thousand backup tapes involved in a lawsuit between two large semiconductor chip makers.
  • Processed data for one of the first large scale, on-site electronic discovery cases requiring disclosure to the EU. This case spanned several years, and later grew to require production to multiple government agencies in the US and Europe.
  • Managed a complex and covert data collection for an IP theft matter for a banking client in Brazil. The case was particularly challenging due to the extreme sensitivity of the matter and narrow involvement of only a few very high ranking individuals within the organization, leaving the team with very little client-side IT support in dealing with their highly secure and locked down infrastructure.


Prior to joining Control Risks, Terry was a Global Operations Director for a US electronic discovery company which conducted business in the Americas, Europe and APAC. Prior to this, Terry worked with a large US logistics company in order to extend their service offering to include document scanning and coding. This involved the installation, training, and support of several document scanning systems across this firm’s US branch offices.

Terry holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from the University of California, Irvine.
