Company History

The Bishop Group has been conducting investigations for more than twenty-five years. Our origins lie in the Lloyd’s insurance market where Bishop International built its reputation by investigating major commercial claims and assisting with the recovery of assets.

At the start of the new millennium the company was reorganised to reflect the changing needs of corporate clients. As part of the reorganisation, in 1999 Bishop International acquired Farncombe International, which had specialised in intellectual property investigations since 1986. That was the start of the Bishop Group.

In 2014 Farncombe International was renamed Bishop IP Investigations. In the same year the Bishop Group was enlarged by the acquisition of software that is at the heart of Bishop Online Brand Protection, the service which enables brand owners to effectively and cost-efficiently monitor and disrupt counterfeiting and grey market activities.

Our senior staff includes lawyers who ensure that our work is conducted to the highest legal standards. In addition, we employ people with degrees in science and technology and others with backgrounds in intelligence, media and with language skills. We provide a range of expertise to deal with your problems and confirm your opportunities.
