Our Services

Integrity Review

Look Closer is a leading provider of in-depth background investigations in connection with the recruitment of senior management or appointments to the board of directors.

While the main purpose of the review is to identify any issues that may impact the organisation negatively, it also provides the client with a better, more rounded understanding of the candidate.

Integrity Due Diligence

Our Integrity Due Diligence service is typically used prior to an acquisition, the formation of a joint venture, or when establishing a new business relationship.

Integrity Due Diligence normally involves an in-depth background investigation of members of the management team, potential co-investors, or other key individuals, but can also include a more holistic integrity investigation of the target company.

Integrity Analysis

Integrity Analysis helps employers, elected officials, and individuals in the public eye to anticipate and prevent potential negative media exposure.

After an initial background investigation, we interview the candidate, analysing his or her past in detail, in order to identify issues that could have a negative impact on the individual or the employer.


In most organisations situations might arise that need to be investigated by an independent third party. Whether it is a whistleblower coming forward, or suspicions of wrong-doing emerging, having access to relevant information in a timely manner is critical when formulating a response.

Look Closer has the experience and expertise to provide decision makers with the information necessary to take appropriate action.


Look Closer is an employee-owned company and our team of analysts have more than three decades of experience in open-source and investigative research. Our backgrounds in business intelligence, industry, and finance help us to better serve our clients’ needs.
