Corporate Investigation Case Study
Review this case study of corporate investigation services pertaining to business intelligence company reports performed by Kreller for our clients.
Due to the covert nature of the industry, client names are proprietary; however, the following case study represents a cross section of international corporate investigations recently conducted on behalf of Kreller clients.
A well-known casual restaurant franchisor engaged Kreller to conduct a routine background investigation on a company in Colombia interested in becoming a potential franchise licensee. No red flags were found in media, court records or with the local police.
However, Kreller’s local investigator engaged contacts within federal law enforcement and uncovered through discreet sources that a company owner had ties to a major drug cartel in Colombia.
The franchisor immediately discontinued discussions with the company in Colombia, thus protecting its reputation.
