We make local knowledge globally accessible.

When business was local, accessing information was simpler. We were all part of the same community, speaking the same language. Today, we operate in diverse markets, with varying transparency. Our decisions about who to partner with, what assets to acquire, which markets to enter, which clients to accept and how to resolve disputes have impacts.

Wallbrook’s multilingual experts rapidly harness information from our on-the-ground global human source network, local corporate and court registries, media and proprietary databases to provide discreet insights to decision-makers around the world.

Go beyond compliance.

To attract and retain the best investors, talent and customers, companies must look beyond mere compliance with international anti-corruption and money laundering legislation. With environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) increasingly in the spotlight, acting responsibly requires access to ethical, independent and objective intelligence.

Resolve disputes.

Information gaps in disputes hinder achieving justice and fair resolution. As independent intelligence gatherers, we help parties to litigation and creditors defend their rights by arming their counsel with reliable, timely intelligence.

Get ethically-sourced strategic intelligence.

Whether screening prospective acquisition targets, clients, management teams and executive hires, unpacking partners' beneficial ownership for sanctions and political exposure, understanding sector and country risks, tracing assets to win disputes and obtain restitution, or conducting ESG reviews and impact assessments, we assist the world’s leading organisations in protecting their reputations.

Our thinking.

What we do sits at the intersection of global business, politics and finance. While our client work is confidential, we love to share the insights we glean from around the world and our thinking on current events.
