Tracing Missing Persons

People need to find other people for a variety of reasons, from lost relatives, old friends, heirs and beneficiaries, witness in legal proceedings and last but certainly not least, debtors.


Insurance fraud is as diverse as the types of insurance policies that are available, although it can be classified in two ways as either hard fraud or soft fraud. Soft fraud, which is far more common than hard fraud, is sometimes also referred to as opportunistic fraud. One of the most common forms of insurance fraud is the exaggeration of injuries sustained in an accident. A person who sustained genuine injuries may exaggerate their extent, their effect on their ability to work or enjoy life and the length of time it takes for the injuries to heal. these exaggerations are often made with the intention of receiving a higher amount of money.

Polygraph Lie-Detection Services

Polygraph is a generic name for an instrument which is commonly known as a 'Lie Detector'. Contrary to popular belief, it does not record directly whether a person is lying or telling the truth; it records changes which take place in the body during stress.

Service of Legal Process

As all lawyers are fully aware the fast and efficient service of legal process is a crucial part of litigation.

Professional Witness Services

The role of our Professional Witness Service is to provide dedicated surveillance and expert witnesses to Housing Associations, local authorities. But we provide international professional witness services through our associated offices.

Computer Fraud Investigation

Investigating computer-related fraud is generally a difficult and very time-consuming subject. It can be a labyrinth for the uninitiated.

Counterfeit & Piracy Investigation

Product Fraud is estimated to cost the legitimate owners millions of pounds each and every year. Forgers, imitators and counterfeiters do not just confine themselves to luxury products of international fame, such as watches, cigarette lighters, leather goods, clothing, perfumes and recorded music - motor car parts, aircraft components, pharmaceutical products and computer software programs are all very suitable products for the international imitator and counterfeiter.


Covert listening device’s which are more commonly known as bug’s are normally a combination of a miniature radio transmitter with a microphone . The use of bugs, called bugging, is a common technique in surveillance and in particular industrial espionage. Most bugs transmit information, whether data, video, or voice, using radio waves. The standard counter-measure for bugs of this nature is to search for such an attack with a radio frequency (RF) receiver, although a good working knowledge of RF theory is needed to operate the equipment effectively.


Forensic science facilities are an important aid to the legal profession in cases of civil disputes, arbitration involving matrimony, protection and industrial accidents.
