Since the early 90-ties we are frequently instructed for large misappropriation claims; large parcels suddenly seem to have disappeared from warehouses and have sometimes been sold by the company that holds them in trust, or were stored in such a way that nobody noticed that they were not actually there, while according to official documents the cargo should still be stored there.
In many cases our investigations on the spot lead to unexpected results. Often it appears that circumstances are different than initially assumed and that several parties can be held responsible for the loss of the cargo, or that cargo had never been actually stored, etc. By local investigations we can also obtain a better knowledge of the local assets of the possible guilty parties, enabling a better recovery. Besides that, if the facts are clear, preventive measures can be taken to prevent repetition in the future.
