What the team is known for
Control Risks is a specialist risk consultancy providing a wide range of advisory services relating to analysis, intelligence and risk management. The firm's business intelligence practice is, and always has been, a longstanding and central component of its services. The firm's highly recognised global in-country expertise and regional presence gives its clients the benefit of an outstanding availability of information, knowledge of accepted local practices and legal restrictions, and relevant macro political and security considerations.
"Control Risks assisted with a fact-finding investigation in a sensitive investigatory matter. It was an extremely positive engagement in what was a very challenging matter. We've worked with several other firms, and Control Risks has been the best of the bunch so far."
"Control Risks has a very good intelligence practice; the firm's global capabilities are outstanding, definitely."
Control Risks assisted a Japanese company whose personnel were detained in a North African country due to legal proceedings brought by the state-owned oil and gas company. Control Risks employed its evidence gathering, due diligence and research capabilities to successfully secure the release of the company's employees and return them to Japan.
