PRIVATE INVESTIGATIONS

With our network of Private Investigators, we do undertake private investigations for and on behalf of our clientele in sensitive matters including but not limited to; fraud, employment related issues, insurance matters, investigative due diligence, tracing of absconding debtors, personal and domestic matters, background checks, locating missing persons and witnesses.

KATS is also regularly retained to conduct sensitive corporate internal investigations. While most internal audit representations are confidential, we can report that our lawyers have conducted investigations on behalf of the Government of Uganda, many a financial institution and regulatory agencies. When conducting an internal audit, our firm assembles specialists experienced in corporate compliance, law enforcement, and the discrete competencies tailored to client needs. We work closely with company representatives to resolve allegations of impropriety expeditiously and effectively, and we assist our clients in analyzing business decisions and in taking corrective actions in response to the audit.

Our team has extensive knowledge providing individuals, businesses and government agencies with the information they need so they can make informed decisions.
