Covert visits

When you don’t want someone to be aware of your presence, rely on our investigation team to help you acquire information through covert visits.

What is a covert visit?

A covert visit is part of an intelligence-gathering process involving seemingly unrelated personnel visiting a workplace or obtaining evidence from within a company without raising suspicion.

There are many reasons why companies or individuals want to conduct covert visits. For example, they may suspect that someone is defrauding them, hiding crucial information from them, or they simply need proof to confront a business partner or address a commercial dispute. The target person could be an employee, a competitor, a litigant, a tenant, or even a family member.

However, not all covert operations are shrouded in mystery, nor is every person targeted a potential lawbreaker. Some of our assignments aim to provide independent verification and peace of mind. For instance, we conduct visits to confirm that one’s commercial tenants are indeed complying with the leasing contracts or one’s investment project is adhering to the requirements as planned.

Our operation is also global, meaning we can conduct covert visits to foreign offices and perform discreet surveillance when needed.

All in all, covert visits are designed to provide legally-obtained information that can help you, your company or your legal case. Give us a call on +44 (0)20 8108 9317 to discuss your specific requirements today.

How do we conduct covert visits?

In every successful covert operation, exceptional planning is a prerequisite. Our team members rehearse numerous scenarios and work out every detail before sending a member to the target site.

Being discreet is also central to any covert visit, which is why our specialists and investigators are likely to assume the plausible identity of a client, colleague or an associate to access the target site and carry out the delicate work of intelligence gathering.

While our work may be more mundane and less glamorous than the detective shows portrait by actors, the element of risk is real. Hence, it is worth mentioning that our team members are drawn from military and police forces and they have been specifically trained in lawful surveillance and intelligence gathering techniques.

What do our covert visits deliver?

Delivering lawfully gathered evidence that can be used in a court of law is our top priority to our clients.

Depending on the nature of the investigation, evidence provided may include:

  • Documentation
  • Email transcripts
  • Photographs
  • Video footage
  • Recorded conversations

This evidence will be prepared by our surveillance team as part of a comprehensive report detailing a full account of our activities and observations.

It’s useful to note that in many instances, gathering information of this nature can also provide valuable insights in an ongoing case and help shape further investigative activities.
