The UK – and London in particular – attracts the global elite. The commercial opportunities and lifestyle on offer mean a large number of high net worth individuals, industry leaders and foreign dignitaries live or visit here regularly.
At the same time, the increased terror threat, the proliferation of organised crime and a spike in more opportunistic criminal attacks mean there is an urgent need for many to take their personal security more seriously than in the past.
At Nath Solicitors we carry out the comprehensive due diligence that’s essential to ensure individuals and companies employing close protection security staff do so only with all relevant information at their disposal.
As experienced contract lawyers too, we offer the added value services of bespoke employment contracts and non-disclosure agreements or services agreements ensuring any hire you make is legally watertight.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS WHEN HIRING PERSONAL SECURITY STAFF?
Our clients have a lot to lose. Close protection is a unique environment. Officers hired by you will often have unhindered access to your family and your private information. And this is why enhanced checks are essential before employing close protection officers and chauffeurs.
WHAT WE DO
Our aim is to put in place the necessary controls to enable a first-rate close protection service for you and your family – where risk is minimized. Our services include:
- Contracts for close protection security services and drivers/chauffeurs –As specialists in contract law we draft bespoke contracts of employment and related agreements, including non-disclosure agreements. If required we can carry out a tender process as part of our contract services.
- Due diligence – If you have recently arrived from overseas and are unfamiliar with the security industry it can be impossible to know where to begin your search for the right protection staff. If you don’t carry out the necessary due diligence process the consequences can be devastating. Our enquiries are extensive and include face-to-face interviews with potential close protection officers.
- Security screening – We sift through job applications and get the checks done. Security screening gives you sufficient information to make an informed choice about whether or not to employ an individual. Usually we vet applicants for the five years preceding their employment with you. But it’s possible to check an individual’s history right back to the age of 16.
The close protection services we offer help protect you and your business from data and other security breaches, physical harm and kidnap. We are discrete, professional and offer completely bespoke guidance. Call us on +44 (0) 7545 813 894 or contact us online.
