INTELLIGENCE

Obtain the information you need to make better decisions, either about partners or competitors. Build upon this to create new opportunities.

Gathering reliable information during the acquisition process is crucial to minimize risk. Managing public announcements, both on the actor side and the receiving side, is necessary to safeguard negotiations. Why worry?

Negative reputation can be friend or an enemy, as it allows to know more about a subject, or it can be built against yourself or your organization by competitors.
We gather and evaluate information globally, both from the media and from confidential, local sources.

We find and evaluate market-entry obstacles, including the market presence of competitors, in order to enable our clients to deploy their resources wisely.

When gathering information, we shape it into intelligence by combining it in a way that gives you the insights you need. The information gathering process is as important as its methodology. We corroborate our reports with sound and documented information. 

Every breach starts with a source. We find that source and gather information about the motives and the means that led to the exposure of your organization.

Although we are the best, we are not the only company conducting corporate intelligence operations.  We help our clients protect their interests thanks to our thorough knowledge of…pretty much everyone in the market.

Whether you are opening a new branch or office, or developing a new infrastructure, we have the competencies needed to assess the local threats that surround it and suggest the actions that should be taken accordingly.

INVESTIGATIONS

Meet regulatory requirements or support legal claims, uncovering wrongdoing within and outside your organization.

We know the compliance requirements you face and have a way to lighten the burden. Efficient onboarding processes are a challenge: let us take the lead on the necessary escalations you may face.

Have you ever searched for someone on the internet to know more about him/her before conducting business together? There is so much more to know out there. We retrieve all information present on the public domain and known in the market by conducting complex investigations.

Whenever you suspect workplace misbehavior or wrongdoing, we are here to help you know what happened. 

We follow your product from the paper to the shelf, uncovering inefficiencies, wrongdoing or plain simple patent or trademark infringements. 

We have been working for many years alongside law firms and know what they need to strengthen a case.

To support our clients during civil litigation, a criminal investigation, an internal investigation or simply in the context of a regulatory compliance disclosure, we need information.

Integrated discovery is the process of identifying, storing, processing, reviewing and producing information extracted and collected from electronic devices (e-mail, chat, files) and from paper-based archives.

By conducting thorough audits and investigations on your IT and communication systems, we are able to detect, understand and analyze vulnerabilities. Let us protect your customers – and your reputation – with our cyber defense programme.

We are able to navigate all jurisdictions looking for information valuable for your debt collection needs.

TRAINING

Every time there is a problem, we see a challenge.

Let us train your team to respond to the challenges it faces every day, valuing the creative minds of its members and empowering your business with the most valuable asset:

critical thinkers.
