Pre-transaction due diligence
The financial, reputational and regulatory risk associated with transactions has never been higher, especially in frontier markets, and our pre-transaction due diligence mitigates this risk, enabling our clients to make informed decisions.
Successful litigation or arbitration is often underpinned by admissible intelligence which plays a crucial role in dispute resolution. Our legally trained team understands the importance of locating crucial witnesses, challenging the other side’s litigation strategy or obtaining corporate data from opaque jurisdictions which can help explain complex ownership structures and assets and is regularly retained by leading law firms and GCs.
Assets are often hidden behind complex offshore structures but with a team dedicated to piercing these corporate veils, we are able to support the enforcement of judgments or awards and identify for counsel the most amenable jurisdictions in which to enforce.
Against a backdrop of greater regulatory compliance and legislative scrutiny, businesses need to counter the increasing risk of business fraud with ever more vigilance and resources. Our expert fraud investigators are able to both mitigate the risk of fraud and investigate complex white-collar crime anywhere in the world whether that be conducting supply chain and regulatory investigations or cyber-crime and money laundering investigations.
