Corporate Research Services

Monday, 1st January 2018

Trident Manor was employed by a client to conduct a due diligence enquiry against a company that was based in the UAE.

Using a mixture of open source material and personal contacts Trident Manor was able to deploy researchers and conduct discreet enquiries at the reported Head Office of the subject of the enquiry. It was established that the offices were empty (door was unlocked and old mail lay on the ground) and had not been occupied for a number of years. Enquiries to establish the identity of anybody involved with the enquiry subject were equally as fruitless with none of the neighbouring companies remembering them operating.

This enabled Trident Manor to question the actual existence (within the UAE) and credibility of the company that was being researched and recommend to the client to be extremely cautious about any possible business dealings.
