Crisis response and advisory
Our specialist investigators respond to and advise on serious crises to protect organisations from existential damage to their people, operations, and reputation. This includes a broad range of eventualities from terrorist attacks and political upheaval, to internal corruption, fraud, and state-sponsored smear campaigns.
At the strategic level, our specialists work with crisis management teams to formulate consistent crisis response plans. While at the tactical level, we collaborate with Emergency and/or Incident Management Teams to create a clear picture of the incident and the events that led up to it.
Additionally, we help your organisation respond to serious organised crime by leveraging specialist resources — including covert capability and law enforcement liaison — to generate a police response. As part of this advisory, we make use of our extensive intelligence and investigation capabilities, as well as our close partnerships with law firms, insurers, and medical providers.
Initiating private criminal proceedings, without the involvement of the police or Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), can be a daunting prospect. However, a robust response conducted quickly and efficiently provides the best chance of catching and convicting those responsible.
To that end, our specialist investigation teams — drawn from a diverse range of backgrounds and supported by years of experience overseeing cases involving fraud, corruption, and organised crime — work closely with law firms and counsel to bring private criminal prosecutions that adhere to the highest standards required by the UK criminal justice system.
The tools at our disposal, coupled with robust disclosure management and area-specific expertise, enables us to help you bring criminals to justice.
Situated in the heart of London, we're able to carry out detailed and comprehensive investigations all over the world, helping senior leaders make the right decision for their case.
We conduct a wide range of investigations, with a particular focus on:
- Internal malfeasance
- Complex security threats
- Cyber security breaches
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).
Working side-by-side with specialist law firms, we support ongoing litigation across multiple jurisdictions, helping you respond to a crisis or, if possible, prevent it altogether.
Clear intelligence and evidence, delivered at the right time and in the appropriate format, can be the difference between success and failure for many of our clients. Which is why we utilise our full array of intelligence gathering and investigation capabilities to establish the context of the case, identify global assets — including those that are hidden — and document malfeasance to support court applications and ongoing cases.
Brokers, underwriters, and reinsurers can also rely on us to utilise these same resources for risk engineering and loss adjustment within the corporate world.
