Engaged by a company in the extractives industry which had its licence revoked by a central African government, ostensibly for failing to meet an investment schedule. Obtained evidence demonstrating that the client had in fact sought to make the required investments but had been frustrated by domestic corruption. Discovered further that a disgruntled competitor was engaged in a negative misinformation campaign against the client. Our findings were used to discredit the campaign.

Acted for counsel on behalf of a group of investors being investigated by a tax regulator as part of a clampdown on tax efficient investments. Evidenced that the investors had been misled in renewable energy projects and that monies thought to have been invested in land, equipment and staffing were in fact embezzled. The evidence was not exculpatory, but it facilitated negotiations with the regulator.

Acted for counsel to fight an extradition request based on a spurious allegation of corruption. Demonstrated and evidenced that the purported investigation giving rise to the allegation had in fact never taken place and that the allegation itself could be attributed to a commercial vendetta.
