COSA supports its clients in the course of corporate investigations by conducting financial analysis, studying documents as well as gathering OSINT and HUMINT within the context of client requirements such as identification of conflict of interest, unscrupulous debtors, embezzlement and other aspects of corporate fraud.
We cover both the internal and external environment in the course of our investigations, at times expanding investigations beyond national borders to trace fraudulently appropriated assets.
Intelligence gathering is an integral part of any asset tracing activity. COSA gathers intelligence during both pre-estimation and tracing.
Our corporate intelligence toolset and system analysis method allows us to conduct sophisticated cross-border asset tracing investigations involving numerous jurisdictions, registry data, OSINT and HUMINT.
We gather information required by lawyers in the course of legal proceedings or for the purposes of pre-estimation of a case perspective.
Evidence gathering implies sophisticated OSINT and HUMINT methods, exceptional confidentiality measures and full compliance with law and ethics.
This aspect of COSA’s work proves particularly useful when clients lack relevant information or pieces of a puzzle to make their case successful.
