Forensic Access Group
We are supporting The Forensic Access Group to become a leading international forensics, criminal justice and security provider, supporting public and private clients both at home in the UK, and abroad.
The Forensic Access Group (FAL) is one of the UK's Top 4 providers of analytical services to the legal, policing and clinical sectors, through toxicology, forensic services, and digital and cyber investigations.
Limerston was introduced to the platform entity’s owner-management team in early 2020 through existing relationships, and went on to create an exciting vision for the future value creation opportunity to collectively accelerate growth. We entered an off-market process directly with the founders/senior leadership and executed a management buyout later in 2020.
What we are doing
Working with the management team at FAL, we have supported them in the identification, execution and integration of four bolt-on acquisitions to date. This has added specialisms in toxicology (ASI Ltd), anthropological and ecological forensics and external training capabilities (Alecto Forensics), and geographical reach for digital & cyber investigations (IntaForensics and Faraday Forensics).
Our Limerston operating partners have been aiding management with selection of key management positions within the group; CEO and CFO, as well as with the longer term succession planning.
Through Limerston investment and our technology operating partner, we have been working with an outside partner and the internal management teams to implement a group wide ERP system covering finance, CRM and people to bring greater clarity to the management teams of their operations and performance.
