We support internal investigations into fraud, corruption and unusual threats. We deploy a range of investigative tools and techniques to solve our clients’ problems. We can work alone, or in partnership with external and in-house forensic and legal teams. We are discreet, independent and transparent about our methods.
We have supported investigations in 74 countries.
We provide a rapid and discreet response to clients dealing with fraud, conflict of interest and corruption allegations, especially in countries where head office has limited oversight. We gather facts about companies and individuals from “outside the enterprise” to support internal investigation teams and counsel.
Bribery & Corruption
We assess the extent and patterns of corruption in target sectors for clients entering new markets. Our integrity due diligence investigations assess the political connections, local reputation and probity of prospective business partners. Our work supports compliance with the FCPA, Bribery Act and other anti-corruption laws.
We gather evidence to support investigations of fraud committed within or outside the organisation. We act for corporate victims of CEO fraud, fake supplier fraud and accounting fraud.
Investigations | Whistleblower Claims
A European technology manufacturer suspected its Russian sales office of contract and revenue diversion. A whistleblower was claiming that certain employees were manufacturing and selling counterfeit equipment. These products were produced to a poor quality in unlicenced factories but had been labelled with our client’s branding.
Investigations | Bribery & Corruption
Our client, an investment bank, was sponsoring a US$1.2bn sovereign bond issue by Angola. Following allegations of corruption in relation to previous issues by sub-Saharan African countries, our client needed to understand the corruption risk. The focus was on how the proceeds of the issue might be diverted from their intended purpose into the hands of ministers and officials.
Investigations | Fraud
Greyhawk was instructed by the general counsel of an electric vehicle manufacturer to investigate a suspected fraud. The client had been approached by the directors of an Abu Dhabi-based investment fund run by a member of the ruling family. The fund was offering to lend our client $500m.
