London, UK


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 helped to produce an exciting value creation plan 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 five bolt-on acquisitions to date. This has added specialisms in toxicology (Forensic Testing Service Ltd and ASI Ltd), anthropological and ecological forensics and external training capabilities (Alecto Forensics), and geographical reach for digital & cyber investigations (IntaForensics and Faraday Forensics).

Through investment and the support of our technology operating partner, we have been working with an outside partner and the internal management team to implement a group wide ERP system covering finance, CRM and people to bring greater clarity to the management team with regards to their operations and performance.
