Corporate Due Diligence and Investigation (CDDI) is the go-to risk intelligence and corporate detective agency focused on Central Europe and the CIS countries. With key consulting professionals, investigators and detectives throughout the region, CDDI is not only positioned, but it has the experience and reach to offer a wide range of litigation support and investigative needs, ranging from crisis litigation research to pre-transaction due diligence to more specified services such as surveillance, asset trace work, site security audits and investigations and sting operations.
In addition, through the founder's more than 25 years of experience in the region, a wide range of PR services (ranging from crisis consultation to editing, design, media campaign review and graphic support) can and has been applied in cases ranging from real estate funds and hedge funds to private equity funds and major manufacturers.
The Corporate Due Diligence and Investigation (CDDI) team consists of a wide range of locally organized investigators throughout Europe. These include former law enforcement, detectives and specialized professionals ranging from real estate experts to those focusing on legal services.
We endeavor to guarantee full discretion while approaching your investigative needs with true understanding of business, local business and political environs and a creative but responsible approach to even the most delicate of personal and business issues.
Finally, our professionals are just that, professionals. We do not rely upon interns, hastily garnered subcontractors or irrelevant and widely attainable gossip. Our professionals are part of our family. If we feel that we cannot approach an issue through this 'entrusted family,' we will not take on your assignment.
As not only a risk consultancy, but a licensed detective agency, CDDI goes beyond typical consultancy services in that needs ranging from pre-transaction to litigation support to asset searches can be and are conducted thoroughly and within the confines of the law. This not only guarantees court admissibility, but it also ensures that your firm does not fall prey to the trappings of Foreign Corrupt Practice Act or British Anti-Bribery infractions, as could be the case when using typical consultancies, which are often unlicensed even in their own respective countries--and which rely on subcontractors that they conveniently do not control. Key to our activities is continued access to legal expertise not only in the CEE but in the CIS countries, which paradoxically offers unique flexibility and a realistic approach to your specific scenarios or situations.
Regional - and global - presence
The CDDI network is not simply a network, but family. This extends throughout the region, but goes further to enable on-demand approaches beyond the CEE and CIS region to that of the Middle East and Africa. That said, each client and each potential client 'whether these located in a CEE core country or in a less (or more) regulated location' is treated on a case-by-case basis in order to ensure that we will in fact not only deliver, but over deliver. This commitment to full and discreet service is what we believe separates us from our competitors on any given mandate.
