Covert Surveillance

We were engaged by a FTSE 250 financial institution who wished us to trace the whereabouts of one of their employees. The individual was as a senior Executive Director who had effectively disappeared for a number of days without explanation and ceased communicating.

Aside from his personal well-being, they were concerned that he was in possession of highly sensitive information pertaining to a large ongoing trade.

Outcome

Utilising traditional investigative means, we quickly located the subject in a Monaco hotel. The client then requested that we monitor and assess his movements over a 5-day period.

During this period, we were able to ascertain and evidence to the client, that the subject conducted several meetings with one of their main competitors. Furthermore, we discovered that he was divulging confidential and sensitive information, in clear breach of his contract, in an attempt to secure employment with the rival firm.

Our evidence was passed back to the client and their solicitors instigated legal proceedings, which resulted in the company salvaging the ongoing trade and avoiding potential reputational damage.
