In the criminal field – W handles suspicions of theft and embezzlement at organizations, including institutional bodies, as well as suspicions of fraud and deception by organizational employees with external elements, eg. suppliers and subcontractors. As an efficient tool in reducing organizational theft and embezzlement, we administer reliable employee examinations: regular examinations and assessments precluding preliminary recruitment to the organization or preceding promotion to a sensitive or senior position.

In order to establish or disprove alleged fraud in an organization, W makes intelligent utilization of a resource package that is custom-designed for each and every individual case.

When necessary and in accordance with the client's wishes, w will act to establish a sufficient evidentiary foundation for the opening of a police investigation. It should be stressed that in order to open an investigation, one must first establish the evidentiary foundation of reasonable suspicion in the committing of the alleged offenses. With years of rich experience in the Israeli Police Force, we have the knowledge and ability to establish this necessary evidentiary foundation.
In the economic realm – we perform in-depth economic inquiries whose objective is to estimate the extent of the subject's assets and the circumstances in their attaining them, in situations where suspicions have arisen in this regard. In addition, we perform economic capacity assessments, whose objective is to assess the financial strength of the debtor (individual, company or association) by identifying their property, in order to collect debts and to perform foreclosure proceedings.
In the field of business – We provide consultation to senior business people involved in business disputes, conflicts with legal authorities or at strategic crossroads in the organization, where competitive intelligence is required.
