How do you help clients?

I help clients find valuable pieces of information, which may be used prior to expansions, investments, third party or employee onboarding, in-depth misconduct investigations or litigation. This information can be derived from a variety of offline and online sources.

My intelligence gathering skills may help clients pre-empt risk prior to a new engagement. On the other hand, after issues have arisen, these skills may help retain or recover value.
