Corporate Liability Investigation Services
Picture the business world as it was before computers and the cloud: an environment of typewriters, dog-eared papers and bulging filing cabinets. Then factor in the passing of 40 years or more, lost documents and companies long since bought, liquidated or dissolved.
It is against this backdrop that our Corporate Liability Investigation team succeeds in producing remarkable results.
For example, we helped a leading retailer trace significant periods of previously unidentified coverage in relation to a number of acquired businesses. This not only reduced the claims costs of current claims but potentially reduces costs on any future claims.
The key to our success is a detailed knowledge of company and employment law together with a seasoned knowledge of all key data sources available.
Our specialist team conducts the required corporate checks and ELTO searches during the lifecycle of the claim and administers any retrospective checks in conjunction with ELTO in order to trace any previously unidentified insurance. Where there is potential for a contribution to the claim and/or recovery of our client’s outlay, we can investigate the identity of the entity who is liable for the recovery/contribution. Additionally, we can also liaise with the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) where there is an inactive or dissolved company with no insurance cover in place.
BAI Claims Services has extensive experience and a proven track record in this field
