ALL TYPES OF LITIGATION

FSG (together with its predecessor entity) has traded since 1985. From the outset, we elected the legal profession as a primary target market. Today, FSG counts hundreds of legal practitioners across South Africa (and several abroad) in our client vase, and our corporate status and B-BBBE credentials have gained us entry to the corporate and government markets. Consequently:

FSG has lent forensic investigative support to virtually every type of civil and criminal litigation.

bullet

FSG has acquired a wealth of knowledge in respect of a range of legislation, court rules and legal procedures. (Of course, we are not legal practitioners - although our investigators include qualified attorneys - and we are careful to defer to our attorney clients.)

All of our investigators ARE forensic investigators whose qualifications include:

bullet

Post graduate degrees in Engineering.

Post graduate degrees in Law.

bullet

Post graduate degrees in Accountancy.

Post graduate degrees in Business Administration.

Some of FSG's specific areas of forensic investigation expertise in support of CIVIL LITIGATION include:

bullet

Unjust enrichment.

bullet

Breach of contract - in all its forms, including contracts of employment, credit agreements, partnership agreements, restraint of trade agreements, agreements with suppliers/service providers, territorial agreements, franchise agreements, trade agreements, specific performance agreements, sub-contractor agreements, joint venture agreements, and so on.

bullet

Compliance investigations and audits, under circumstance that the subject of the investigation/audit is the subject of civil proceedings, or could be so.

bullet

Financial profiling. FSG has developed powerful tools for this purpose, which find express in FSG's FINANCIAL ASSESSMENT INVESTIGATIONS ("FAI") for natural persons and for entities.

bullet

Investigations indicated by the results of OPERATIONS RISK AUDITS and FINANCIAL FORENSIC AUDITS (click HERE for further information) performed by FSG. (All audits of a financial nature are overseen by a Director of FSG who is a qualified accountant.)

bullet

Unbundling complex corporate structures (especially those of entities that have created complex structures to disguise the ultimate shareholders/beneficiaries of such structures to avoid creditors, creditors and the consequence of non-compliance with statutory obligations.)

bullet

All nature of civil disputes.

bullet

Divorce law (forfeiture, etc.), children's law (care and contact, parental rights and responsibilities). combined with issues like alienation of affection, Family Advocate Enquiries, infidelity, child abuse/neglect Parental Alienation Syndrome, maintenance, RAF law, etc,

bullet

Investigations performed to assist the recovery of substantial debts. FSG DOES NOT COLLECT DEBT, but does provide investigation and tracing services to FACILITATE debt recovery, such as our FINANCIAL ASSESSMENT INVESTIGATIONS and CONSENT SIGNING SERVICES. Such efforts could also include the identification/location of concealed liquid, moveable and immoveable assets.

bullet

Disputed/repudiated insurance claims. We accept instructions from both insurers and insured parties (and their respective legal representatives), but never in respect of the same claim.  Please note that FSG is an accredited investigation service provider to the Road Accident Fund. We are instructed by the RAF directly in respect of internal issues, and by the attorneys appointed by the RAF to defend claims against the RAF - for which we have developed our RAF CLAIM DEFENCE FORENSIC INVESTIGATION and a national infrastructure to provide the service anywhere in South Africa.

bullet

Labour disputes; gathering evidence and deposing witnesses, chairing or prosecuting Disciplinary Enquiries; the development and implementation of Disciplinary Codes that comply with legislative requirements but are specific to the peculiar risk environment of a given employer.

bullet

Accessing information from a substantial number of confidential databases (including those owned by banks, the landline and cellphone telecommunications operators, numerous government departments, SAPS, etc.) We are instructed to access such databases for the likes of assessing whether a debtor has the means to settle a substantial debt, due diligence exercises pursuant to the conclusion of an agreement, and to provide intelligence to facilitate interrogations (eg. Section 65 and insolvency).

bullet

Tender and procurement irregularities.

bullet

Comprehensive BACKGROUND CHECK INVESTIGATIONS to establish the likes of credit histories, criminal histories, employment histories, financial/trading histories, relationship histories, litigation histories, social histories, and others.

Some of FSG's specific areas of forensic investigative expertise in respect of CRIMINAL LITIGATION include:

bullet

So-called White Collar Crime.

bullet

Financial/commercial crimes, including theft, fraud, graft, bribery, corruption, etc. (Click FINANCIAL CRIME/CORRUPTION for details.)

bullet

Child abuse.

bullet

Common law crimes; murder, assassination, kidnapping, theft, assault, etc.

bullet

Narcotics-related offences.

bullet

Organised/syndicated crime in respect of commercial crime, burglary, hijacking (of vehicles and freight), etc.

bullet

Criminal offences defined by statute including:

bullet

Intellectual property/counterfeiting law, company law, insolvency law, trust law, tax law, competition law, consumer protection law, labour law, mental health law, divorce law, children's law, domestic violence law, sexual offences law, debt recovery law, constitutional law, health and occupational safety law, private security industry law - and many others.

bullet

Legislation in respect of which THE PUBLIC PROTECTOR is mandated to investigate, resolve, sanction and prevent contraventions. (FSG is an outsourced investigative resource of The Public Protector, a prerequisite of which is intimate knowledge of the legal framework in which the Public Protector operates.)

Regardless of whether the civil dispute or criminal activity is specifically included above, it is probable that - after more than a quarter of a century in practice - FSG has investigated it. USE THE EMAIL BUTTON TO FORWARD YOUR INVESTIGATION ENQUIRY/INSTRUCTION TO FSG. We will respond by producing a detailed INVESTIGATION PROPOSAL in which we will define the anticipated scope of work to which we will put time lines and fee/costs/disbursement estimates for the purpose of proposing a budget to perform the requested investigation.
