WE BUILD THE CASE TOGETHER
An increasing number of lawyers and solicitors are now conducting their own investigations, and one of the reasons is due to the lack of resources available to police and law enforcement. Crime rates are going up in Sweden, and this, in combination with criminal cases not being investigated properly, is an issue. Evidence is sometimes left out of investigations, and key witnesses may not be interviewed at all.
To successfully conduct an investigation, you need a very specific skill set, patience, the right equipment, and experience, and this is something we can assist with. We work both with legal representatives and directly with the client, depending on what the situation requires.
We act as a helping hand in legal cases, where we provide you with intel and information obtained through physical and digital surveillance as well as investigation and other methods. In close collaboration with you and/or your client, we put together a plan to secure evidence that will help you reach your desired outcome.
We collect information, and we carefully document relevant events, actions, and individuals with both image and video recording. We are surveillance experts, and we always work discreetly and with complete professionalism. Physical surveillance is offered throughout Sweden, as well as abroad.
Intelligence gathering means that we collect information related to a specific request made by you or your client. Such a request may, for example, refer to finding a hotel reservation, a travel booking, or the call logs for an individual.
We assist lawyers and solicitors with conducting thorough background checks; this could be a background check on a witness, or an individual relevant in a divorce, a custody dispute or in a business setting. Our background checks dig even deeper than most, as we have access to both official and unofficial databases, from which we can retrieve information relevant to your case.
Due Diligence is a way of gathering information related to an important business decision. Due Diligence gives you an in-depth understanding and knowledge of a company, of its employees and management. We also perform Due Diligence for lawyers and solicitors.
In some criminal cases, it may become necessary to search digital devices, such as computers, cellphones, and tablets, for leads and evidence. It is not unusual for evidence of the crime and illegal activities to have been erased from a unit, purposely, and if this is the case – lawyers and solicitors may come to us for help. We have the skills, experience, and technology to recover lost or deleted data.
With our forensic investigations, we can retrieve data from defective and/or destroyed units, as well as from units where the material has been deliberately erased. We recover data such as text messages, pictures, videos, audio files, e-mails, and search history, and this information can then be used in a preliminary investigation or once a case has gone to court. The type of information we can access and provide is often crucial for the outcome of a case.
When a custody dispute arises, both sides involved will often find it difficult to communicate and to find common grounds. In this situation, professional legal assistance is needed.
Sometimes one parent may be unfit for custody, either because of their current financial situation or due to documented violent behavior, abuse and/or other factors. In such a case, a custody hearing may be the best way to determine what is best for the child.
The best interest of the child is always top priority in a custody battle, and in such cases, both sides tend to be free to present whatever facts and evidence they see fit. We can assist a parent or a lawyer to find evidence for- or against a statement made, and we can help prove declining mental health, possible abuse and/or whether an individual is suitable as a custodian. If relevant, we also try to obtain evidence of physical and/or psychological abuse of the child or children in question.
UNAUTHORIZED PROCEDURE WITH CHILDREN
We deal with situations where a child is being kept from the other parent and/or another legal guardian. If this person has custody of the child, and if the child has been extracted from its home and/or kept hidden – legal action must be taken, but it can be difficult to locate a child that is being intentionally concealed, especially if having been taken abroad.
Our job is to locate these children with the use of methods such as surveillance and in-dept investigation, and we try to ensure the safe return of each child.
We investigate the financial situation of an individual or an organization, and this includes looking at all kinds of assets. Our investigations are extensive and complete, where we check any existing assets and their true value. This service is built on sophisticated intelligence, where we look at assets that are officially accounted for, but also assets that are perhaps kept abroad, cars registered in someone else’s name and more.
LOCATING AN INDIVIDUAL
Witnesses sometimes choose to disappear before a trial, to avoid having to testify, or there could be a case where someone isn’t aware of having witnessed something of value.
We can find people both in Sweden and abroad thanks to our large and extended global network. All surveillance is carried out discreetly, and we will only make contact after receiving your permission and confirmation.
CONFLICTS OF INTEREST
When we take on an assignment, we do a thorough control check to make sure that there is no conflict of interest or other reservations that should prevent us from participating. We can work either directly with the client, or with his/her legal representative.
