INVESTIGATIONS

“There are situations that one just simply can’t handle relying only on legal and administrative protocols and processes. One needs ability to foresee person’s and stakeholders’ reactions and prepare accordingly. One step ahead makes it easier to choose the correct actions. This is what we offer to our clients”.

The need for valid and sound information is an ever-existing reality.

Information is turned into intelligence by finding out the meaning for pieces of information thus creating a picture of the situation in whole.

Purpose of the investigative services is to help you stay compliant, uncover any possible wrongdoing, audit and verify existing processes, recover losses or establishing the root-cause for disruptive incidents. The convergence of both physical and cyber elements exists everywhere, and we have the capability and know-how to work in both these elements.

What to expect?

The key to a successful investigation is to understand and determine the “Why?” we are doing this investigation. In the beginning this might be just “a hunch” or doubt that needs more information or we might have a clear picture of what has happened, and we need to find out how and by whom this has occurred.

 

Most of the time, there are no quick wins or immediate “smoking guns”. Most of the time we are dealing with very sensitive, delicate issues and need to proceed as in walking on thin ice – ability to stop before we get soaking wet. Sometimes this might be frustrating. The solid process and integrity of the investigation is utmost important at all times.
