Raedas Consulting Limited


Raedas is a leading specialist investigations firm for contentious situations. The first and the only UK specialist investigations firm dedicated exclusively to contentious situations, Raedas offers clients an exceptional experience that reshapes the traditional perspective of what an investigations firm can be. We are the only investigations firm ranked band 1 by Chambers and Partners for litigation support.

Within a few years of the firm’s establishment in 2016, we have gained wide recognition among clients and peers for our outstanding capabilities in tracing assets and enforcing judgments and arbitral awards – particularly in Europe, Latin America and the regions covered by China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) such as the Middle East and the CIS.

Through decades of experience in the industry, our team has acquired an unrivalled depth of expertise on investigative methodologies, legal discovery and disclosure processes and enforcement strategy which enable us to maximise the interests of our clients in contentious situations. Our team has combined linguistic capacities covering 13 languages. We regularly act on behalf of the world’s leading law firms in significant litigation and arbitration matters. Our clients frequently require us to present expert and factual evidence in court and before tribunals. We are praised for having an outstanding capacity in obtaining information through measures that often combine investigative methodology and legal process, public relations and lobbying to protect the interests of and deliver an advantage for our clients.

Our Services

Since the introduction of the Belt and Road Initiative in 2013, an increasing number of Chinese companies have looked to markets overseas in search of development and investment opportunities and partnerships. Along with opportunities, business critical issues can surface, particularly in regions such as the CIS, the Middle East, Latin America and Africa where the levels of political, operational and legal risks are high. At Raedas we leverage our expertise and global network to help Chinese clients navigate through regional complexity when disputes arise and provide bespoke solutions that maximise our clients’ interests.

Contentious Situations
We assist clients in moments of crisis or extraordinary adversity – particularly in countries covered by the Belt and Road Initiative – to counter hostile parties or competitors, mitigate black public relations campaigns and resist unjustified government pressure.

Asset Tracing and Recovery

We work with legal counsel to enforce judgments and arbitral awards, identifying assets, unwinding asset protection structures and delivering evidence in support of attachment and discovery applications.

Litigation and Arbitration support

We assist legal counsel in complex global disputes, providing documentary and testimonial evidence, intelligence and strategy.

“What sets Raedas apart is that they live and practise a true specialism in litigation. They are strategists as well as investigators.”
