Detective Services

Our award-winning, fully registered and regulated private detectives with operatives across Spain provides full investigative support to both companies and individuals in a full range of investigative areas:

Business Brand Protection

Who is this service for?

Protecting intangibles such as brand and trademarks can sometimes require 'boots on the ground' to obtain evidence of the infringement of incredibly important company assets. Typically this service involves the investigation and obtaining of evidence of such activities undertaken by third parties that could result in material loss to a company, including:

  • Falsification of a company’s brand or unlawful appropriation of other Intellectual Property Rights
  • Unfair competition practices
  • Theft of ideas/plans/patent designs

What does this service consist of?

  • Discussion with a registered and regulated private detective to determine the specific nature of the problem
  • A proposal shall be developed to enable investigators to obtain sufficient evidence of infringment of intellectual property rights
  • The investigators shall execute the plan and endeavour to obtain the evidence, which upon being obtained, may be used as evidence in Court, since the investigators are registered with the Ministry of Justice
  • A ‘Mystery Shopper’ service is available, if required for certain types of investigation.

Infidelity Investigation

Who is this service for?

A very common request we receive is for our private detectives to investigate the activities of a spouse or partner to determine if they are being faithful and what activities they may be carrying-out in relation to joint-assets held by the couple, for example. We manage enquiries from long-married individuals to those who are planning a marriage and may wish to have an independent expert verification of their partner's fidelity and possible threat to their assets.

What does this service consist of?

  • Initial discussion with the private investigator to determine the objective of the investigation
  • A strategy will be developed by the investigative team to include a plan of activities necessary to obtain the evidence required
  • Tracking of the subject - from arrival in the country to their hotel/apartment and their activities thereafter (if ordinarily resident abroad).
  • Presentation of evidence to include photos/video/audio as required.

Missing Persons

Who is this service for?

In Spain approximately 7500 people of non-Spanish nationality are reported missing to National Police each year. It may be that a loved-one goes missing or, also common is to simply lose track of a family member or close friend over the years.

Unfortunately the resources available to the Police make searches often fruitless. For this reason, employing a private investigator can be a more effective strategy - especially when accurate information can be provided to the detectives.

What does this service consist of?

The detectives will need to be furnished with accurate data relating to the missing individual, including:

  • Name or names they are understood to be using
  • Up-to-date photo (if possible) and description of their appearance
  • Approximate age
  • Last known location
  • Hobbies and interests, their profession (if any)
  • Places they are known to visit

The specifics of the search will vary with each case, and the investigator will often carry-out a preliminary search and provide feedback to the friend or family member and then proceed accordingly.

Scams & Fraudulent Activity

Who is this service for?

Unfortunately it is all too common for foreign nationals to fall victim to fraudulent activity in Spain. These will quite often be carried-out by native English-speakers who are well versed on how to abuse English-speakers' trust in order to deprive them - sometimes - of their life-savings.

While victims will often correctly report such activity to the Police, unfortunately the resources available to the National Police in Spain make investigations often fruitless, since false names are used, and such fraudsters are not locals, and may be unknown to the local or national Police. For this reason, employing a private investigator can be a more effective strategy - especially when accurate information can be provided to the detectives.

What does this service consist of?

Upon receipt of as many accurate details regarding the fraudulent activity, our detectives will:

  • Mount an operation to determine the identity of the individuals behind the scam
  • Collate a report on any evidence they are able to obtain
  • Hand over the findings to the local Police to use in an official investigation and, with luck, arrests
  • Work with local lawyers to initiate criminal and civil proceedings to seize any assets held by the criminals
