Whether you’re considering a new acquisition, strategic partnership or major investment, the only way to protect your organisation is to first conduct a process of thorough due-diligence.
In supporting you, our singular aim is to instil you with the confidence that you can trust the people and information you are dealing with. By helping to identify the risks and threats to which you are potentially exposed, we can help you manage uncertainty and protect your assets and reputation.
By undertaking risk analysis and due diligence investigations prior to an acquisition or investment, we can identify any adverse legal, financial or operational irregularities. By identifying these risks in advance, you are more likely to avoid any legal and professional fees which can accompany any poorly informed decision. Furthermore, the information we uncover may also enable you to negotiate concessions during the deal negotiation.
In addition to conducting the standard searches of publicly available records on the company and its directors to identify red flags and ensure that their activities comply with all statutory and regulatory guidelines, we pride ourselves in our ability to delve deeper through the acquisition of human source intelligence. More often than not, it is the information obtained not in the public domain which proves to be the most informative.

ii. Anti-Money Laundering
iii. Sanction (current & previous)

We provide on-going post-transaction research and advice, including both formal and informal monitoring services, to ensure that due regulatory compliance procedures are adhered to which provides assurance to the directors, shareholders and relevant authorities that a constant watching brief is in place.
Where necessary, we also provide robust compliance enforcement services, ensuring that all parties comply fully with the terms of the agreement, thus minimising the potential risk of corrupt practice.
By employing discreet ethical physical and technical surveillance, we are able to identify risks at an early stage and enable you to act pre-emptively to minimise any loss.
