Until I manage to earn sufficient funds with which to purchase a Hammock and Mauritian citizenship, our office is based in Johannesburg but we travel widely around the country covering each of the major population areas.
We have also operated Namibia, Botswana, Kenya the southern half of Mozambique, Nigeria, Ghana and Cameroon. These last places are where we have trusted fixers who can arrange security a decent place to sleep and are well enough connected for us to be effective.
Our specialty is background intelligence on individuals and corporate both in South Africa and overseas for a multitude of reasons. High net worth individuals getting married, pre investment diligence, software piracy, pre-employment screening, reputational risk and a stack of other reasons have brought work in the door but such is the job that we also take on a variety of other taskings.
The vast majority of our work has an international flavor with foreigners needing work done in Africa or South Africans needing work done overseas. For a bit of that flavor we are currently conducting a workers comp case here in Johannesburg for a US insurer an Iraqi address visit for a German client, a South African bigamy enquiry for a Russian client and are serving UK divorce papers in Cape Town next week. (Nope I aint going to Iraq, but we have a good local fixer there that works wonders).
Although not our specialty we have partnered up with trusted colleagues in other firms so that we are able to facilitate close protection, secure couriering, surveillance and a few other ancillary tasks that tend to have an investigative component.
I'm a Brit by birth but lived previously in Ireland, Malaysia and Switzerland before moving here. Traveled throughout SE Asia, cities in Australia and New Zealand, a fair bit of the US, most of Europe and a lot of Africa. Have yet to get to South America or pacific islands. (Any one got work for me there?)
Still single (apparently due to my hammockless status but working on it) no kids, love a good whiskey, enjoy the jungle (leafy not urban) like to dive and will jump on a plane at a moments notice if it means going somewhere strange or unusual that no other fool wants to go to or would think of going to. Speak a little bit of a lot of languages but not a lot of any particular one.
