Giving our clients the confidence to work with new partners in any market.

We conduct enhanced due diligence for clients across multiple sectors to help mitigate risks from new commercial relationships and to inform their strategic decision-making.

Clients turn to us when they need independent investigation and thorough analysis of the reputational and regulatory risks associated with their business partners.

We provide clients with the information they need to make key commercial decisions. Our in-house specialists often have expert due diligence backgrounds, and an excellent working knowledge of FCPA compliance, UK Bribery Act compliance and other national counter-bribery legislation. Endorsed with top rankings in Chambers Litigation Support Guide 2020.

Always practical and thorough, Risk Advisory has been invaluable in helping us assess risks around counterparties and senior hires, particularly in Russia.

Risk Advisory understands how political dynamics and risks have changed in particular countries. It is so much more than just mining some databases for information- it's understanding the landscape extremely well and how everything fits together so you really get that comprehensive feedback.
- Attorney at a Washington DC law firm
We give Risk Advisory our most complicated stuff, our most serious allegations, the stuff that’s going to take the hardest to get to the bottom of. Then they’re pretty much always engaged.
