Preventing, investigating and resolving threats, toxic behaviour and unwanted attention

Who are we?

Our goal is to help our clients feel safer

When you are engaged in a dispute, being harassed, threatened, or stalked, it can cause anxiety, paranoia and even hypervigilance. Clients tell us that these issues become the sole focus of their attention, disrupting their sleep, and impacting their personal and professional lives.. What you want is the problem to go away, whilst ensuring you’re safe from physical, reputational, and psychological harm. You want the reassurance that any specialist you employ really understands the issue and can differentiate a real threat from those who seek to intimidate and threaten you. We specialise in preventing, investigating, and helping to resolve such issues, whilst mitigating the risks.

When you are targeted, it’s both terrifying and unclear what you should actually do about it. Yes, you have legal recourse but it’s slow, expensive, and a large distraction for your organization to pursue.

Philip and his team specialize in this situation, and have dealt with hundreds of other cases. They were invaluable in guiding us. Most importantly, the course of action they recommended proved correct.
Sarah Cone Founder & Managing Partner, Social Impact Capital - Venture Capital - New York City
Philip is an expert in problem-solving threats emanating from the online environment. He has a unique skill set derived from several years of work with Members of Parliament and other high-profile individuals. There are few, if any, individuals in the country with the experience of Philip in this field of work.
Simon Causer Head of Security at The City of London Corporation
Philip has presented his craft to members of the Security Institute and there is no doubt that he is a master of this niche area of security advice. Stalkers and fixated people are often unpredictable, but as far as it can be predicted, Philip has a solid expert viewpoint that only comes from experience and academic rigour. There is no one else I would seek advice from if I found my family, friends or colleagues being victimised by such a stalker.
