LITIGATION SUPPORT CASE STUDIES
A civil suit defendant submitted an affidavit to a UK court ostensibly detailing all his financial holdings. Guardian identified tens of millions in real estate holdings that had not been disclosed. Preliminary searches of tax haven jurisdictions identified some nine figures in assets in numbered accounts. The plaintiff settled with our client based on the larger figure to avoid sanctions.
A purported asset manager sued a Guardian client claiming non-payment for contracted services. A Guardian background screening report indicated that the plaintiff had a long history of questionable yet coercive lawsuits. Further findings indicated the plaintiff had overstated his professional credentials. The suit was withdrawn.
A franchisee stopped making scheduled payments to a telecom company, claiming impending bankruptcy and dissipated sales. A Guardian investigation showed the franchisee was marketing the product through an alias and had hidden $5 million in profits in off-shore accounts. Settlement talks are underway.
A forensic accounting review on the eve of trial revealed that a recent acquisition had understated liabilities, thereby overvaluing the entity. The seller withdrew claims.
A home health services provider was accused of several million dollars overbilling by a state medicare overseer. Before the agency carried out its threat to revoke the client's license, a Guardian review revealed that the so-called overpayments were appropriate and had been flagged as result of a software glitch in the state system.
