Company’s Lead Investigation Consultant, Tim Boyd, explains how the proposed legal changes have positively impacted upon the business
London UK (PRWEB UK) 16 September 2016
Amid concerns that company bosses could soon find themselves held personally liable for any corporate misdemeanours committed by their staff, London-based private investigators, PDL, have experienced a rapid uplift in international clientele. Celebrating a growth of more than 50% in the three months since June, the company’s Lead Investigation Consultant Tim Boyd, explains how the proposed legal changes have positively impacted upon the business.
‘At Private Detective London (PDL) and Private Detective Manchester (PDM) we’ve always attracted a strong international client base because we have a multi-lingual team and work 24/7, which means that we’re always on hand when a new job is presented. Our results-driven reputation also helps with this, explains Boyd. ‘However, with the threat that company CEOs may soon be held personally responsible for the action of their team members, it is now more important than ever before for owners and directors of international organisations to have a firm idea about the calibre of their employees – not just their performance, but their history and their trustworthiness.
‘Of course, it’s a lot more difficult to keep track of employees when you’re working on the global stage, and it’s for this reason that many international corporations have been seeking our help.’
As well as an increase in background checks and due diligence, PDL and PDM have also noted a rise in other international corporate and private investigation services, covering everything from surveillance and counter-surveillance, to matrimonial checks and the serving of legal documents.
Having worked in the trade since 1994, PDL and PDM have come to understand the needs of international clientele. As well as delivering a results-focused, reliable and trustworthy service, communication is at the heart of what they do. ‘It can be difficult to cultivate trust in cross-border communication,’ adds Tim Boyd ‘especially when dealing with sensitive subjects. Having an assigned and experienced case-worker and a single point of contact within the business really helps to combat that. If we’re to do our best for our clients, we need to know that they trust us with all of the relevant information – even the personal issues – so it really helps to build a rapport. This is especially important when working with international clients, when we may not have the chance to meet face-to-face. So far, our case management system seems to be working, and we’re delighted to be welcoming so many new international names.’
