Surveillance remains a valuable investigative resource.

Internet Investigation and Online Research (OSINT)
With the rapid growth of the internet, e-commerce and social media, our clients report that law enforcement resources are increasingly limited and as a result the onus falls on them to perform ‘online’ investigations, intelligence gathering and enforce their IP rights.
We provide a range of ‘boutique’ tailored solutions for our clients. Our surveys, research and monitoring can be conducted both ‘online’ as well as ‘on the ground’ and both are supported by our covert infrastructure and natural cover facilities, often enabling us to deliver where others simply fail.
Litigation is a fundamental component of many brand protection strategies.
