MSI has provided a range of services including due diligence and asset recovery to multinational firms in the energy industry.
Asset Recovery and Due Diligence
A multinational energy company filed a claim with underwriters for contract frustration. The client, a global underwriter of political risk insurance, sought to investigate the causes of the contract frustration and determine possible remedial courses of action.
A team of local researchers supported by industry analysts was engaged to investigate a range of issues. To begin, MSI conducted an industry and geopolitical assessment to identify the issues impacting the energy industry in Ecuador. Concurrently, local researchers conducted interviews with industry experts and company employees to ascertain the contract-specific issues.
The research identified the specific causes of the contract frustration. These insights enabled the client to identify the appropriate courses of action to achieve the best possible outcome.
