About us

In a world of computers and desk research, we believe that in-depth local knowledge, an inquisitive nature and sound judgement will deliver the best results for our clients. We apply our extensive experience to every issue we work on and we deliver intelligence that you can confidently rely on to make informed business decisions and support your litigation. We are flexible, nimble and responsive to changing priorities and our business experience brings deep understanding of our clients’ commercial needs.

We’ve been in the global corporate intelligence business for a combined total of nearly 50 years and in that time we’ve met a lot of people and developed an extensive network of trusted resources around the world. We work for a truly international client base and support them with corporate intelligence and litigation support wherever their operations or new investments are based.
