FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION

We offer to meet with you or your representatives (e.g. Claims personnel, Solicitors/Loss Adjusters, Health & Safety/HR personnel, etc.) to establish the best course of action for you/your organisation and to advise you on the next steps if, and when, you decide to proceed with an investigation/service. This free, initial consultation will ensure that you are fully appraised of the legal constraints of carrying out an investigation, surveillance operation, fraud/claims investigation, drone exercise etc., in the United Kingdom to mitigate against any potential GDPR/data protection breach.

RESULTS-DRIVEN INVESTIGATORS

We are a results-driven business, ensuring that we get the best possible outcome for every client. We do not believe in 'billable hours', and we strive to obtain the best possible result for our client. Fees are transparent and agreed in advance of any investigation.
