Litigation and Dispute Support
Taking a recovery-led approach to disputes
Control Risks works with you and your organisation’s counsel to assess counterparties and assets before action, investigate and conduct eDiscovery during a dispute, and support asset enforcement and recovery after a settlement.
The success of a legal action can hinge on the quality of the information held by each party, and we can assist with gathering and analysing evidence for a range of proceedings, including tribunals, regulatory, civil and criminal actions.
With 34 offices across the world, and over 500 dedicated professionals, we have the track record and local presence to support our clients. Our experience in international markets and established network of in-country contacts make us market leaders in investigative analysis and complex problem-solving for regional and global clients.
At this stage in the litigation process, you’re looking at the track record, modus operandi and pressure points of your counterparty. We support you by investigating the decision makers, financial backing, and political/government connections of your counterparty. Through social media mapping and online surveillance capabilities, we ensure that proceedings can be served effectively.
Fit to sue assessment
The fit to sue assessment is focused on the financial standing of your counterparty, a key factor in determining a successful outcome. To support you at this stage, we facilitate asset identification and valuation, using global research capabilities and on-the-ground enquiries that inform litigation strategy and implement freezing orders.
Early case assessment
Discovery as well as technical and expert issues make up the case assessment stage of a dispute. We offer a range of support at this crucial point in the process.
Our investigation support includes gathering evidence, attending witness interviews and identifying undisclosed information. We can also provide expert witnesses to give oral and written testimony in all manner of disputes, claims (including force majeure) and investigations.
Our forensic accounting services provide financial analysis of damages, valuation assessments, and asset identification in financial statements, and our digital forensics and eDiscovery services support you with data collection, processing, hosting, analytics and production.
At this final stage of the process, the focus is on recovering assets and future-proofing your business.
We support you in asset enforcement by establishing the status of notable assets and business across the globe. And our recovery and counterparty review services help you implement due diligence frameworks to review current and future business partners, as well as contractual and supply chain vulnerabilities.
