Judge gavel, scales of justice and law books in court

Let’s imagine this scenario:

You’re a company in the UK who imports expensive cars. You pay an overseas supplier for a fleet of top-quality cars. You get a note saying the cars are being shipped, but along the way they mysteriously disappear, presumably lost at sea. And your supplier has conveniently forgotten to buy insurance for them. What do you do?

The answer: come to Blackhawk for pre-litigation support.

From checking if there is any fraud at play to determining if the company you’re suing has any valuable assets they can sell to reimburse you, our pre-litigation support services give you an advantage when you’re thinking about heading to court. Having a supplier abroad also doesn’t deter us, since we can cover multiple jurisdictions and we have a specialised, fixed-fee service for international process serving.

International offshore investigations

At Blackhawk Intelligence, we have a wide network of on-the-ground contacts and lawyers based overseas. We work with them to carry out a variety of services, such as background checks, asset tracing, due diligence and fraud investigations, as well as securing bank disclosures and injunctions. Our expertise means that you should choose Blackhawk for your international offshore investigations.

Asset tracing

Blackhawk’s asset tracing service allows you to have a clear picture of whether or not the company (or person) you are suing has anything of value available to meet any judgment secured. This key piece of homework is a necessary step that should be done before you decide to embark on costly litigation to recover your money. If the company (or person) has nothing of value, it may not be wise to go ahead with the litigation process, as this may be more detrimental to you in the long run. With our asset tracing service, Blackhawk can help you figure out if litigation is the right step for you.

Prevention is key

Due diligence is an essential pre-emptive service that can help you identify risks associated with a business transaction. In the case of the missing cars in our above mentioned example, using due diligence before signing the deal can help to identify the risks and can aid you in your decision-making process, thereby preventing you from making a detrimental business error before you’ve transferred any money. It is also more cost effective for the buyer to engage Blackhawk and use our due diligence services, as you’ll ultimately save on dispute and litigation efforts later.

With an extensive international network, years of experience, and teams of specialists working round the clock for law firms and organisations, Blackhawk Intelligence is your trusted partner for due-diligence, asset tracing, and pre-litigation support.
