The law firm’s client had been in negotiations about a multi-million dollar investment with a firm in the Middle East. This firm maintained a professional website with profiles of its senior executives, had provided a high quality corporate brochure and documentation about its history and projects.
Integris launched an in-depth due diligence investigation into the corporation and its principals. The investigation revealed that the company was in fact a mere shell company. All claims on the corporate website and in the provide documents were false. The profiles of the “management board” were pure fiction and the sole principal of the shell company had a history of fraudulent activities.
