Corporate intelligence

Corporate transactions could put your company at risk if you don't know who you are really going into business with. We offer a unique, affordable and bespoke solution for investigative due diligence.

We have an experienced team of forensic accountants, investigators and specialist intelligence analysts with law enforcement backgrounds who can help to:

 

  • Conduct due diligence on the management team or key financials of a potential acquisition.
  • Give you confidence that a target company or its customers, suppliers, business partners and employees will not put your reputation at risk.
  • Verify credentials as part of your pre-employment screening checks.
