- Corporate Due Diligence Investigations are initiated at varying stages during the due diligence process including both pre- and post-transaction, whenever best suited to our clients’ needs. We work in tandem with our clients to obtain and provide details that are critical to the successful and appropriate conclusion of deals and transactions.
- Open Source/ Public Information/ Social Media Investigations With the proliferation of social media and open-source intelligence (“OSINT”), it has become essential to conduct social and Internet research to seek out content that may not represent your organization or clients in a proper light. Our research allows clients to be confident that potential concerns are identified in advance in a timely and efficient manner.
- Key Employee Background Screenings Hire and retain with confidence. Board members, candidates for high-level executive positions, specialized consultants, and temporary administrative assistants, we provide the information needed to fully assess each candidate’s personal and professional history. We conduct an independent background inquiry providing precise and thorough information related to content areas outlined by our clients.
- Litigation Support, Document Retrieval, and Analysis We can assist with the development of leads and evidence and gathering testimony based on specific legal strategies and needs. Our team can identify “new evidence,” where appropriate, in both the course of litigation and for appeals.
- Asset Searches Whether individual or corporate assets, our team thoroughly scours public records, use innovative research techniques and interviews to follow the clues to wherever they may lead. Through similar processes we help determine liabilities, indebtedness, and other “hidden” assets.
