Investigations

Our corporate investigators are high skilled in interviewing, gathering evidence and surveillance. Chas understands the importance of admissible evidence and the standards of proof required for civil and criminal actions. In partnership with our clients, we develop a thorough investigative strategy that addresses the issues and meets the client’s needs.  We work with our clients to appropriate evidence to support any subsequent civil, criminal or regulatory action.  Our team of experts work with our clients through every stage of investigation strategy.

 

The Process
We provide insightful data on the claimant's level of disability through injury claim verification. This includes thorough research into the claimant's background, investigative surveillance supported by detailed reporting, and quality video footage.We follow up with comprehensive background information and intelligence: 

Insurance Claim Investigations

By using an Integrated Investigation Strategy – we combine cyber research, surveillance and collateral investigations - to develop an understanding of the claimant’s behaviours and lifestyle habits and whether they are consistent with the claimant’s presentation of disability.  Relevant information is shared with among the three investigation methods to ensure that our investigation is thorough and fact based. Adjusters are often overwhelmed with the number of injury claims they have to manage.  We build strategic alliances with our clients by aligning our services to meet their needs to adjust their claims.  Working in partnership with our clients, our goal is to be a positive return on investment when compared to settlement costs. 

 

Cyber Research 

Our cyber researchers enable our clients to uncover the connections between specific individuals, business entities, assets and patterns of behaviour. Our comprehensive investigations are conducted to assess risk and threat to our client's physical assets and reputation. Our platform makes use of state-of-the-art technology, copious electronic information from publicly available sources and our researchers' deep training in
investigative research. Our integrated approach to fraud detection provides our clients with the information that they require to effectively manage their file loads. 

Surveillance Investigations

Our team of surveillance investigators consists of dedicated multi-ethnic individuals who are able to discreetly and ethically gather evidence using creative strategies. All of our investigators must adhere to stringent knowledge and performance standards developed through best practices and maintained by ongoing training and team collaborations.

Collateral Investigations 

Our investigators decisively drill down on information discovered during an investigation to determine whether they are fact or fiction.  Through time-honoured investigative methods such as neighbourhood canvasses and witness interviews, we want to provide our clients with relevant information so that they can make informed strategic decisions in the way they manage a file.

Corporate Fraud Investigations

Our corporate investigators determine the cause of wrongdoing, identify suspects, limit losses, and re-establish confidence with stakeholders that include partners, customers, and regulators. We will always align our services to meet our client’s needs.  We are able to draw upon our extensive experience in corporate investigations; working closely with counsel and senior managers to ensure our investigative strategies are effective in collecting appropriate evidence that will be of utmost value.Throughout the entire process, we communicate regularly with our client to ensure that our investigative strategy remains consistent with their objectives and needs.

Due Diligence Investigations
A variety of risks are inherent in today’s increasingly complex global marketplace, including mergers and acquisitions, and joint ventures. Business deals are based on expected synergies and anticipated profits, but entering a business relationship requires thorough due diligence investigation to ensure the capability, stability, and solvency of your new team – individuals who will have access to highly sensitive information.
