How a Corporate Investigation Plan Works

Each corporate investigation starts with communicating with the client. We define the issue or concern and how we can help. Once we have a clear idea of your needs, our investigators start compiling an investigative plan. Often, this stage involves working with pen and paper and brainstorming ideas.

When a clear plan has been determined, our investigators communicate the plan with you. The investigative plan contains all planned actions, the respective methods, and the required budget. After receiving final approval from the client, we take action.

Investigation Tools and Resources

corma works with state-of-the-art technical equipment and software for investigations or when taking preventive measures on our clients’ behalf. We only use these measures in compliance with the law and regulations. See the following list as an example:

Investigation Database

We create an investigation database (i2 IBM iBase) for each of our cases. Beyond supporting our investigative work, the database is very helpful for complying with the German data privacy rules.
All important details are documented in the database, including:

  • Importing of all relevant data
  • Documentation of every investigative step
  • Case history and analysis

Data Protection Regulations

Our appointed Data Privacy Protection Officer ensures that all team members comply with the data protection regulations at any given time. He will also clarify all important questions with the client and review possible contractual agreements.
