Litigation Support

Imagine you could win every case for your clients. Think what this would do for your commercial and professional standing, your reputation among clients and peers and, importantly, the future of your practice.

Success breeds success. A swift, satisfactory resolution that a winning case brings means you can increase your billings. But that is just the start.

Your enhanced reputation in the industry would see cases land in your lap. Recognised as a proven winner, you’d be seen as the go-to-service for resolving disputes. You’d be able to focus more on lucrative cases, freeing up your time to build your client base and watch your practice go from strength to strength.

Does that all sound too good to be true? Not if you instruct the right litigation support professionals.

ESA Risk is trusted by lawyers worldwide to provide independent, tailored and professional litigation support services

As a successful lawyer, you require a solid support team that can be relied on to be there at any time for your clients. You need professionals who possess a formidable pedigree and deliver only the very best results.

We have both the credentials and the professional expertise to give you the peace of mind you need with any dispute, no matter how complex nor intractable it may appear.


Our expert consultants

Our multi-disciplinary team of highly experienced consultants includes forensic accountants; certified fraud examiners; corporate/private investigators; digital forensics specialists; and cyber experts, all of whom currently work with successful litigation teams and their clients.

We have an impressive track record of managing complex, global assignments. ESA Risk’s consultants have worked extensively across multiple jurisdictions and deal regularly with the different legal and regulatory requirements in those territories.

Global reach, tailored to each individual case

Our global reach is such that we can draw on an impressive network of consultants in different countries whose invaluable legal insights and local knowledge are critical to achieving effective and quick results while also minimising costs. This is important as we recognise that litigators are up against tight deadlines, but must deliver tangible results within budget. ESA Risk’s pedigree in this field means you can trust us to deliver accurate and effective results quickly, and all at commercially acceptable rates.

Our services are tailored to each individual case, and we will work discreetly, to ensure your clients’ best interests are always respected and are never compromised.

From the early-stage quantification of a claim, our forensic accountants can provide you with expert analysis of financial records to assist your case. We’ll also undertake pre-litigation investigations to ensure there are sufficient assets to cover the claim and costs.

If assets are hidden through complex structures and have been divested to family members or associates in anticipation of failed litigation, we can draw on a network of UK and international contacts to help your clients successfully locate, freeze and retrieve their assets. We can also help trace, locate and identify individuals suspected of any financial wrongdoing.

Fraud and cyber investigations is our forte in the corporate sector. We have extensive experience of undertaking detailed investigations for large corporations and organisations, and we can gather intelligence across multiple jurisdictions. Our cyber experts, many of whom have worked within the intelligence services, have the skillsets to identify and investigate the most critical issues. We have the scalability to act quickly, which is vital when trying to recover stolen assets.

Our professional negotiators can deal with criminals in kidnap for ransom situations, relating to people and/or intellectual property.

We can also draw on our expertise in the forensic collection and analysis of electronic documentation to ensure the evidence you need to win your case is robust and can withstand cross-examination.

ESA Risk’s track record includes:

  • Providing global intelligence gathering and asset tracing assignments for UK banks on distressed asset portfolios;
  • Undertaking fraud and litigation support assignments for major UK law firms;
  • Working with law enforcement agencies and government institutions in the UK and overseas to bring to court UK and foreign entities and individuals;
  • Working with corporate clients who have been attacked by cyber criminals and who have had assets and intellectual property stolen.

Our collaborative and dynamic approach enables us to provide scalable resources quickly to litigation teams across the world at a proportionate and realistic cost which helps relieve financial and time pressures on litigators and their clients.
