Corporate failure, misconduct and mismanagement often leave lenders and creditors seeking to recover value. Recovery can be complex when assets are located across geographic borders and concealed in offshore locations and more so when there are deliberate attempts to dissipate and avoid detection.

Asset Tracing and Data Intelligence 

We use investigative tools and leading technology platforms to identify and uncover sources of information well beyond what is available in the public domain. The use of human intelligence is often key in providing leads to critical information which can be utilized in direct negotiations and/or legal proceedings to recover value. 

Our team deploys cutting-edge, market-leading tools in machine learning and open-source intelligence, complemented by the engagement of a worldwide intelligence network to procure intelligence in challenging jurisdictions. This is combined and enhanced with expert analysis by specialist financial investigators, forensic accountants, and insolvency practitioners to identify and locate assets. Intelligent data mining and analysis are at the heart of our investigations, and our in-house tools enable our team to search and utilize billions of records to find unusual patterns, variances, and insights.  

Cross-border Asset Recovery 

Our asset recovery services are truly global. Using our knowledge of insolvency and deep understanding of legal remedies as an asset recovery tool in offshore jurisdictions, we work closely with our international colleagues to produce and develop actionable intelligence to enable the recovery of financial losses and stolen assets worldwide.  

We provide project management and litigation support on complex and multi-jurisdictional matters to repatriate the proceeds of fraud and corruption wherever perpetrators may have hidden funds or assets. Our team regularly consults with governments, law firms, banks, corporations, litigation funders and non-governmental organizations, leading high profile and complex investigations into bribery, corruption, misconduct, conflicts of interest, embezzlement, and misappropriation of sovereign wealth.

Forensic Accounting & Investigations 

Our Cross-border Asset Recovery team provides access to traditional insolvency procedures to maximize returns by collaborating with our colleagues worldwide. We have a deep bench of subject matter experts in: 

  • Tracing and identifying the destination of funds 
  • Conducting financial transaction analysis 
  • Reconstructing financial statements, and 
  • Providing litigation support for financial dispute matters. 
  • State-of-the-art eDiscovery

We assist clients in all stages of an eDiscovery exercise, from identifying and preserving data, to document review and production. We provide a sophisticated software platform and actively work with clients and external counsel to ensure technical aspects of the discovery process are identified and preserved in a sound forensic manner for court admission, and further assistance can be deployed where necessary.

We regularly draw from the expertise of our in-house forensic accounting, asset recovery and investigation specialists to address key litigation matters as they arise and assist clients with navigating data to establish best-practice workflows. Our experts advise on searching and filtering, perform ‘Technology Assisted Review’ workflows as required and, in the latter stages, ensure that relevancy, privilege and tagging have been completed before producing a final disclosure set.
