Once the information is obtained then a reasoned and balanced decision on how best to proceed can be made; whether this be civil litigation, criminal proceedings, termination of a contract or a change of supplier.
Obtaining this information can be difficult; therefore, it is often best to have an independent team who can approach the investigation, and a review of the evidence, in an impartial manner and allow the Board to make decisions based on fact, rather than emotion.
Our corporate investigation team works closely alongside senior management in a wide variety of sectors, offering support and guidance at every step of the way.
We conduct a wide range of investigations, with a particular focus on:
- Internal malfeasance.
- Complex security threats.
- Cyber security breaches.
- Bribery, corruption and fraud.
- Crypto currency investigations.
- Supply chain theft and diversion.
- Enhanced due diligence and ‘red flag’ checks on third parties.
Whether the investigation ends in prosecution or not, our priority is to draw a robust conclusion, supported by appropriate intelligence and evidence, to inform top-level decisions. We always ensure that all the evidence obtained can be used to support legal processes further down the line (if required).
