Complex and contentious investigations

All of our consultants have experience of investigations in local government, health and the third sector.  We see it as complementary to our core business and we provide an independence and rigour that is sometimes not available from within organisations.  With our extensive direct management experience, we are familiar with the human resource legal requirements which are essential for this type of work.

We have successfully completed complex and contentious investigations for a number of local authorities in social care, housing and environmental services. Examples include work relating to:

  • Extensive financial fraud
  • A complaint against a children’s social care department
  • Sexual harassment and bullying
  • Gross misconduct in respect of  false claims for sick pay
  • Managing complex adult abuse inquiries
  • Serious case reviews
