When dealing with clients who claim to be insolvent, there's always the possibility that they aren't disclosing everything when it comes to their financial affairs. For this reason, we here at CCS offer insolvency investigation services.
An insolvency investigation is a legal process in which a financial expert, known as an insolvency investigator, examines the financial affairs of an individual or business that is unable to pay its debts. The investigation is conducted to determine the causes of the financial difficulties and to identify any potential wrongdoing or mismanagement. The investigator will review financial records, interview individuals with knowledge of the financial affairs of the individual or business, and report on their findings to a court or other relevant authority. The purpose of the investigation is to help determine the best course of action for addressing the insolvency and to ensure that the assets of the individual or business are distributed fairly to creditors.

Information is power, and we provide Insolvency Practitioners with the power they need by:
In a memorable case, our client, who is an insolvency practitioner, engaged us to locate a missing bankrupt. Using investigative techniques we located and identified the target within 24 hours. We were then engaged to undertake a period of surveillance on the target. This surveillance proved that the target appeared to be running his own business, which had not been disclosed to our client, his trustee.
We engaged with the target and did business with him, recording the transactions and lengthy discussions regarding his business. All such evidence obtained was in contrast to representations made to our client. As a result, our client was confidentially able to take affirmative action, including the sale of the business and recovery of a large amount of funds for creditors.
All calls are kept strictly confidential
