Called C|T Solutions and Private Advisory (C|T SPA), the new agency sits within Crosby's C|T Group.

The controversial strategist has famously worked for a number of right-wing parties in different countries, including the UK Conservative Party, which he assisted in general election campaigns this century, alongside party leadership campaigns.

C|T SPA will be headed by Jon de Jager, previously MD of C|T Private, which merged with C|T Solutions to form the new entity. Former C|T Solutions MD Eugene Curley has moved to a new role of founder director.

In a statement, C|T Group said the new London-based agency "will focus on providing actionable intelligence, investigative expertise, financial insight and strategic counsel both to private and corporate clients and to law firms and their clients around the world".

"The new firm will help clients to manage complex risk, protect their assets and preserve their reputations. C|T SPA will offer clients unique, implementable solutions to solve complex and often seemingly intractable problems to achieve their desired outcome."

Crosby said: “I am delighted to announce the launch of this company, which will build on the success of our existing corporate intelligence and financial insight capabilities and offer innovative new solutions to complex challenges facing our clients. This new approach will allow us to better provide comprehensive actionable insight and advice to existing and new clients while strengthening the core offerings and services within the group.”

De Jager said: “The formation of C|T SPA comes at a time when both individuals and corporates are going to face increased scrutiny from tax authorities, regulators and business partners. The combined resource of C|T SPA makes the company exceptionally well placed to thrive in this COVID-changed environment. By merging two complementary business units, we are better able to understand these multifaceted situations and provide clients with bespoke solutions based on the Group’s proven evidence-based methodology, the C|T Way.”

In November last year, an investigation into Crosby's firm CTF Partners over allegations its staff worked on Boris Johnson's campaign for PM without registering with the Office of the Registrar of Consultant Lobbyists found the firm not guilty of any wrongdoing.
