Inquiries commence with basic database checks in the appropriate languages and routinely involve more in-depth, active investigative options and interviews. We have an extensive network of contacts and deploy personnel to conduct on-the-ground inquiries throughout the world. IR’s specialist capability allows us to combine access to relevant databases, official records, linguistic support and very senior in-country contacts, with sophisticated analysis to deliver high quality due diligence advice and recommendations to our clients.

• Foreign Corrupt Practices Act 1977 (USA)
• Bribery Act 2010 (UK)
• Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 (Australia)
