Surveillance Teams and Equipment
We have undertaken major complex international covert surveillance operations that on many occasions have been in hostile environments.
Our surveillance teams have been hand selected, then trained in-house and a number of the operatives are ex-military, ex-government agency or ex-police. They operate in all fields of commercial, criminal, insurance, matrimonial, counter terrorism, counterfeiting, etc. SIP surveillance teams are equipped with the latest state-of-the-art covert surveillance equipment to ensure they capture the images that are relevant to the case.
SIP surveillance teams operate in all jurisdictions and frequently follow individuals from one country to another. When clients instruct SIP for surveillance they can be assured they are getting a service of the highest calibre and results that they can rely on.

IT Forensics, Security and Cyberlabs
SIP keeps pace with current IT security threats; MI5 recently released to the UK business leaders (including Banks, Financial Institutions, Accountants and Legal Firms, major Corporations etc.) a warning of ‘electronic espionage attack’ by ‘a Chinese State and Russian Organisations’. Such attacks are IT related but could also involve interception of telecommunications.
We keep pace with constant changes in technology that occur everyday so it can continue to maintain the high level of IT security and forensics that it is able to offer today. If clients have difficulty in being made aware of the latest threats and vulnerabilities or have previously attended expensive seminars to learn about them, SIP can help you.

Legal Team and Solicitor Support Services
SIP has been working in conjunction with law firms representing its clients for decades and knows that in any type of case, be it fraud, medical, commercial, complex white collar crime or matrimonial financial settlements, if the client wants to secure the best possible results, then a legal team is essential. Historically legal teams consisted of a number of lawyers & barristers/QC’s who specialised in a particular field but now with cross jurisdictions and growing technology there is a growing need for input from specialist investigators, forensic accounts and IT forensics. Apart from points of law this joint knowledge enables decisions on changing case tactics and the forensic evaluation of evidence, etc.
During recent years SIP’s CEO, Kenneth Lodge, has been working with top international law firms as a legal team member, where he has been engaged in discussions on case tactics and drafting of documents; he specialised in the forensic examination and evaluation of documented evidence, both submitted and received in commercial, insurance, complex criminal and high-worth matrimonial cases.
Practises and methodology have been preferred over this period of time and include:
As a result of Kenneth’s expertise in this area, lawyers/solicitors, barristers and judges have constantly praised him for the manner in which he has contributed to a case including his evaluation and presentation of evidence. In addition to this it has been acknowledged that the successful results would NOT have been achieved for the client without his input.
The combined knowledge and shared opinions of the specialist solicitor, barrister/QC, investigator and other appropriate specialist, when working as a team, prove extremely invaluable and beneficial in achieving the best results.
In instances where the client does not have a solicitor/lawyer already representing them, SIP has a good knowledge of specialist lawyers/solicitors dealing in many fields of law and will be pleased to assist the client in formulating the right team that is affordable and within the client’s budget.
SIP is able to perform commercial, civil, criminal and matrimonial investigations on behalf of law firms in order to provide the support they may require in the gathering of appropriate evidence, such as data information, document research and analysis of evidence, tracing, witness statements, plans of locus quo, surveillances, IT forensics, forensic accountancy, etc.
SIP has been providing services in these areas to the legal profession since 1983 and keeps pace with the changing legislation. In specialist areas SIP has access to expert witnesses to compile reports in respect of their particular speciality and to attend Court for the purposes of giving evidence should the need arise.
SIP is able to deal with all matters which a law firm would expect of an investigation agency and much more. Any enquiry from a law firm will receive a prompt response and a professional service.
