Pre-litigation Reports

Before incurring expensive legal fees, there is real merit in obtaining a pre-litigation investigative report because there is nothing worse than “throwing good money after bad”.

You may look to recover a debt, recoup what you’ve lost to a fraudster, or seek compensation from guarantees stated in the contract, but before taking action, rely on our pre-litigation report to get the necessary information to assess your chances of getting back what is owed to you.

At Blackhawk Intelligence, our litigation support team works with legal firms, companies and private individuals to determine if an opponent is worth suing and if there are commercial factors (other than the legal merits of a claim) that could potentially influence the case. In other words, the information will allow you to assess the opponent better and make an informed decision when it comes to taking legal action against them.

Personalisation is key

The target opponent can be a person, a group of individuals, or a company. Accordingly, the pre-litigation checks or reports will be customised accordingly. Here is a list of items that are commonly included in our reports:

  • Confirmation of the company, its current and past directors
  • Confirmation of the subject and their current address(es)
  • Company insolvency and/or personal bankruptcy searches
  • Assets owned by the company or the subject
  • Lifestyle enquiries of the subject or company directors
  • Past and pending legal proceedings
  • Financial reports of the target company
  • Employment history of the target subject
  • Other information that may be of interest to you

It must be said that as every case is different, what goes into your pre-litigation report should be unique to your circumstances too. For example, if you want to know if the target company has the financial strength to fulfil guarantees or warranties when you win your case, a more in-depth financial viability assessment of the target company may benefit you.

Another example is when there are multiple individuals involved, it is wise to check which persons are stronger financially than the others.
