Legal investigations

Examples of our investigative work include:

  • In an extremely contentious criminal offence case, through our instructing solicitor, we introduced the first virtual re-enactment video evidence within Australia which independently corroborated our client’s claims.  The matter proceeded to the High Court of Australia where our client was vindicated and the case dismissed.
  • In a compensation case, we tracked a supposedly injured worker from Central Highlands to the Grampians, where we observed him performing physical activities such as fishing, and rock climbing; feats he claimed he was no longer able to perform.
  • In a proposed company merger, we conducted comprehensive due diligence background checks on both our client’s and adversaries Board of Directors, providing for our client a clearer picture of the adversaries’ personalities, strategies, and motivations.
