VESTIGA offers Due Diligence, Background Checks and Internal Investigation services to provide key information for decision making and to mitigate risks within an organization.
The ability to obtain, process and analyze information -the result of our experience working for the world's leading risk consulting firms on complex projects with local and transnational companies- sets us apart from our competitors.
We know that in times when all types of fake news abounds, it is critical for organizations to count on accurate, timely and reliable information for their decision making.
Thanks to our collective experiences, VESTIGA has developed methodologies that enable us to gather significant amounts of data and information, and corroborate that information against various other sources.
Background Checks and Due Diligence
At VESTIGA we think outside the box, developing investigations using public information in addition to information from the best available databases as well as our own databases. We help identify key aspects of the background and relationships of individuals and companies that are relevant to our clients, such as potential conflicts of interest, important omissions in employment or professional background data, or the existence of legal disputes or litigation.
Using varied techniques and the expertise of our team, we obtain relevant and timely information and evidence for our clients' various legal procedures. The information we provide to clients is important for making strategic decisions in cases of fraud or breach of trust by employees or partners, commercial disputes, disputes with governmental entities, and labor disputes, etc.
Public security threat assessment
We prepare reports with reliable and timely information and analysis and with a comprehensive perspective on the current and potential future public security issues in various cities and regions of Mexico as well as other Latin American countries. We can do so thanks to our own up-to-the-minute databases as well as access to databases incorporating the latest information and developments. In addition, we can tap into our vast network of contacts and human sources in various sectors and industries.
At VESTIGA, we provide our clients with tactical and strategic information and analysis for crises related to labor, commercial, reputational, fraud, and hacker attacks, among other situations. Through this work we can help organizations ensure business continuity, prepare containment and remediation responses, and protect key assets.
Internal or corporate investigations
VESTIGA has extensive experience in a variety of complex investigations to obtain valuable information and, where appropriate, documentary evidence for strategic decision making. This information may eventually serve to initiate legal proceedings on issues such as unfair competition, collusion between employees and suppliers, conflicts of interest, fraud, and information theft, etc.
Unfair competition investigations
We have solid experience conducting investigations into unfair competition practices by our clients' competitors. We conduct exhaustive reviews of proprietary and market databases and use field investigations and other key information gathering techniques, depending on the nature of the unfair practice being investigated.
We identify "hidden vices or flaws" in pre-transactional processes (purchase or merger of companies, opening of new offices or plants, etc.), in order to provide our clients with information for tactical and strategic decision making, document evidence for possible legal proceedings and/or create and implement remediation and/or risk mitigation measures.
Forensic audit / Fraud prevention
We are a highly professional and experienced team in forensic audits to obtain evidence and documentation of fraudulent acts and breach of trust by employees and/or suppliers. We prepare reports of forensic audit findings that serve for making strategic decisions and supporting insurance claims. We also prepare reports or expert opinions that can support clients in labor, commercial and criminal proceedings, depending on the circumstances.
Integrity monitoring of employees, partners or suppliers
Due to regulatory and compliance issues, as well as to protect our clients' business interests, VESTIGA has developed resourceful techniques to obtain information and monitor the performance and trajectory of employees, partners, clients or suppliers. In this way, we help clients to identify conflicts of interest, collusion with third parties to the detriment of their interests, and any pattern of conduct that may pose potential risks to their business.
Using various techniques developed over the years by VESTIGA's experienced team, we carry out investigations to identify assets publicly registered by third parties with whom our clients are engaged in litigation and/or dispute proceedings that require this type of information.
Conflict of interest investigations
VESTIGA develops investigations that combine the exhaustive review of data in available databases, field research and consultation with contacts and sources of information. These efforts, employing resourcefulness and seizing opportunities, uncover acts, schemes or dynamics in which conflicts of interest exist between employees and/or suppliers of our clients with third parties unrelated to their interests.
