Asset Investigations & Asset Recovery

Updated: May 30, 2022

When someone completely disappears, social networks and internet searches are not enough. When a company or individual needs to trace and recover assets, appointing a specialist forensic accountant with global experience can help you move quickly and legally. Our company includes a licensed and professional team in the field of services we provide. During the property investigation, our team of highly experienced private investigators will locate the property of a particular entity. Such claims are often used during litigation or divorce, so if the subject in question is trying to hide assets or resources, the evidence will be able to prove that they exist. If you believe that you or your company have been defrauded, you can use civil proceedings to seek to regain what has been wrongly taken. Asset tracing and recovery is the name of the legal process used to find and recover those assets. It’s a service that is in demand, due to the growth of e-commerce, the increase in domestic and international trade, and current economic pressures. However, before launching a tracing and recovery investigation, it’s vital you get specialist advice and follow the correct procedures to ensure the safe recovery of your asset.

There are many reasons why you or your business might need to recover assets. Perhaps a supplier owes you money or has gone into insolvency, there’s been a corporate theft or fraud, or you’re seeking a fair appraisal of a partner’s assets in a divorce. In these cases and more, forensic accountants can help you trace and recover assets that are rightfully yours as part of a financial investigation. Before you can recover assets, first you must locate them. We locate things like bank accounts, investment accounts, real estate, land, businesses, vehicles, and more. Our chief asset researcher has over 200 years of experience. Over the years, he has been up to date with all the changes regarding the monitoring of bank funds and much more. We also subscribe to databases that are only available to license private investigators and law enforcement detectives.

Assets may have been spent, sold, placed in another person’s name, or moved across borders. Traceable assets are wide-ranging and can include real estate and other businesses, moveable possessions such as cars, yachts, and airplanes, as well as financial resources such as stocks and shares, undeclared bank accounts, and cash. Tracing these assets is highly specialist work, that requires legal and financial experts to untangle the web of transactions to trace their origin and final destination. It’s complicated, time-consuming, and potentially expensive.

While it can be tempting for companies or individuals to cut corners and attempt to trace assets themselves, this is extremely risky as you need to act in a legally compliant way.

In the case of assets moving across borders, it can be a tightrope walk dealing with the various countries’ legal systems. We have an experienced network of global lawyers to ensure all the necessary and legally-sufficient steps are taken to identify, freeze and recover misappropriated assets wherever they end up.

Do you have a verdict against someone in Switzerland?

People often get judgments and never collect. Hire an experienced private detective in Switzerland who will conduct appropriate searches to locate the property on which you can collect. Fees included in property searches and hidden assets can often be added to a judgment. Talk about it with your lawyer. In Switzerland, we can find things such as real estate where the Entity resides, bank account information, stocks, brokerage account information, hidden assets, and companies registered in Switzerland under the Entity name.
