Whispering Bell provides professional investigative services and consultancy to international corporations impacted either by legal disputes, employee misconduct, fraud, criminal behavior and regulatory faults. Our team of investigators have extensive backgrounds in law enforcement and intelligence and adhere to the highest international standards. We are capable of delivering on the ground results to clients in high risk and often opaque business environments throughout the Middle East, North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
International corporations operating in multiple countries and unfamiliar business environments may be vulnerable to corporate fraud and theft, either from inside the organization or by external actors. Language and cultural barriers may limit visibility into business operations and the identification of potential misconduct. Whispering Bell’s team at its core is based upon in-country, local language, in-person interviews and source operations. This also includes a wide network of multilingual researchers and analysts, with experience working in challenging business environments in multiple jurisdictions. We combine our expertise with robust on-the-ground data collection, digital forensics capabilities, social media research and analytics to provide evidentiary insights for our clients.
In recent years, Whispering Bell’s tailored investigations have proven effective in diverse sectors, including oil and gas, telecom, pharmaceutical, banking, investment and insurance. We have identified instances of fraud, misconduct and regulatory infractions within organizations having potential legal, financial and reputational consequences. After submission of our findings, Whispering Bell also provides remedial recommendations to mitigate the risk of misconduct reoccurring in the future.
