Case Study

Criminal response to a FTSE 100 multinational specialty chemicals company

United Kingdom



A FTSE 100 multinational speciality chemicals and sustainable technologies company encountered an attempted theft of precious substances by a sophisticated organised criminal gang. We supported the client by conducting a full investigation by conducting a full crime response investigation which included on the ground enquiries such as witness interviews, statements and a complete CCTV trawl to piece together a timeline of events. From the initial evidence, we facilitated cooperation with a specialist unit in the Metropolitan Police. This enabled our investigators to identify stolen vehicles used and enhanced the window of opportunity to capture the criminals by closely linking in with law enforcement across the UK.

Outcomes for the client

  • The client obtained clear evidence of the intrusion and evidence that could be used in criminal proceedings.
  • Risk management reduction measures identified.
  • Ongoing advice and support.
  • Positive outcome – cooperation from specialist teams in the police and ongoing engagement should further offences occur.
