About Us

WHITTINGHAM was established by former police officer and qualified solicitor, Edward Whittingham.

Through his work at an international law firm in the field of fraud, regulatory and corporate crime, Edward recognised the need for a truly professional, ethical and reliable corporate investigations service that subscribes to the same strict code of conduct as the clients that instructed them.


WHITTINGHAM provides an unrivalled quality of service to law firms, insurance companies and large corporations, combining years of investigation experience with genuine commercial awareness.


We set ourselves apart from other investigation companies by being truly transparent at all times. And it’s these professional and ethical practices that our business was founded upon.


With a breadth of experience spanning the police, military and private sector, we are confident our team has the specialist knowledge to meet your needs. From discrete surveillance to multi-faceted fraud investigations, we have the expertise to deliver the complete spectrum of investigative services.

Integrity and Ethics

At WHITTINGHAM, ethical investigations are at the forefront of what we do.


Our services are rooted in law, so you can be confident that our methods can always be disclosed where required.


We are uncompromising in our approach to being professional, ethical and reliable, and by always upholding our core values, we ensure never to compromise your liability position or commercial reputation.


Unlike many other investigative agencies, we benefit from having a real understanding of the standard of integrity required by the professional services community. You can be assured that we will never allow our work to fall short of the standards you strive for when serving your own clients.


All work carried out, and evidence collated, is guaranteed to comply with the requirements of Civil, Criminal and Family Procedure Rules, in addition to all relevant and current law.
