Independent
Review Service

Verita are leading UK independent consultants for regulated organisations.

Independent Review Service

Even the most successful businesses will sometimes need a discreet and independent opinion about a management issue or to demonstrate that they are taking action to investigate matters affecting their reputation. It could be a serious governance or performance failure, a complaint or simply a group of managers who don’t get on.

We offer businesses a tailored and independent review service provided by senior, high-calibre individuals with exceptional credentials and extensive management experience. They each have an impressive track record of getting to the bottom of complex issues and delivering evidence-based reports capable of withstanding challenge.
