Licensed detectives

Corporate Due Diligence and Investigation (CDDI) is a licensed detective agency, and we operate within the wide, but controlled legal sphere that this allows. You can thus be assured that we gather intelligence and conduct projects legally, and we have among us decades of combined experience with regard to not only garnering evidence, working with prosecutors and foreign bodies, but also with successfully submitting evidence to court.

In the end, we know that in litigation support admissible evidence is critical, and we will work with you to enhance your legal strategy by supporting your legal team or guiding you to legal advisors that are proven in your field and jurisdiction.

Finally, it should be said that our detectives have a proven track record in difficult operations, ranging from surveillance to counter surveillance to sting operations (in which admissible evidence was obtained) to liaison work with local and international authorities. Team members have successfully located and aided in the prosecution of money launderers, social engineering and VAT scam artists and internationally sought fugitives.

Our strategy

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.
