In a regional court, a US-based client was being sued for allegedly issuing a number of credits. A third-party later claimed those credits. Our investigators provided the client’s legal team with evidence revealing that the claims against the client were fraudulent. Supporting the client’s legal team throughout the lawsuit, our investigators also discovered and presented evidence linking the plaintiffs with organized crime. The client won the lawsuit. Subsequently, criminal charges were filed against a senior manager and external persons for collectively colluding against client.
