A leading global pharmaceutical company suspected that information of a confidential nature was being shared with individuals outside the company.

As the employees under investigation were based on a different continent and spoke a different language to Head Office, our client approached Guildhawk for help with their inquiry.

Leveraging technology, language & cultural expertise

Guildhawk provided our client with an e-Discovery service, in order to analyse employee emails for certain key words and phrases indicative of potentially fraudulent activity. This took into account language and cultural differences, as well as sector and company context.

Our expertise

Having worked with the client, our specialist linguists and anti-fraud experts to develop a detailed key term list, we set up a central station where data provided by the client was securely held, analysed, and run through our e-Discovery tools for evidence of these terms.

The resulting reports and summary translations were then sent to the relevant stakeholders for use in their inquiry.

Our client was very satisfied with the data provided and the ways in which this facilitated their work. We are continuing to assist them with subsequent phases of the investigation.
