FP's Western Europe practice supports its clients in the region with in-house researchers and a network of cross-industry sources. We have a dedicated six-man team conducting investigations across the region.

The region's core clients consist primarily of private equity, hedge funds and financial institutions, whom we assist with integrity due diligence on investment targets, portfolio company executives and new customers.

The team is led by Jakob Ravnborg, formerly head the Scandinavian and German desks at one of our industry's founding companies, who has managed hundreds of due diligence investigations for financial-sector clients over the last decade. Contact Jakob

The team also specialises in asset searches and other forms of litigation support for law firms, based primarily in the DACH region and Scandinavia. The litigation support team is led by Christopher Werner, who has years of experience working on large-scale disputes and asset searches, including the Bernie Madoff case. Contact Chris
