Black Cube is a private intelligence agency, which is based in London, Paris and Tel Aviv,[1] and is the trading name of BC Strategy Ltd.[2]

Official narrative

Black Cube told the BBC that it “applies high moral standards to its work, and operates in full compliance with the law of any jurisdiction in which it operates.”[3]

Staff

The company was founded in 2010[4] by former Israeli intelligence officers[5] Dan Zorella and Avi Yanus. Its employees include former members of Israeli intelligence units, including Aman, Mossad and Shin Bet, as well as legal and financial experts.

Activities

Black Cube's main business is "litigation support", in which the company provides intelligence, evidence and advisory services in multi-jurisdictional legal and white collar crime cases.

Weinstein assistance

Black Cube gathered information about women accusing Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment to try to help him escape conviction. Summit News reported that "tried to intimidate journalist Ronan Farrow in order to “bury the truth” about Weinstein’s activity."[6] Asher Tishler, a member of Black Cube’s advisory board, remarked “In retrospect, it’s a shame we took the job.“[7]

Crimes

In Romania, two of its employees were convicted of criminal charges involving harassment and hacking.[citation needed]

Exposing Corruption

Black Cube’s Human intelligence capabilities have proved to be an effective way of exposing fraud, bribery, money laundering and corruption. The company uncovered high-level corruption in the judicial systems of Italy and Panama.[citation needed]
