Uncover critical information in advance of investments, partnership opportunities, dispute negotiations or employment offers.
Effective negotiations depend upon accurate information – as does any major decision involving strategic risk to the corporation.

We serve as trusted advisors to the legal, financial and compliance teams charged with formalizing and assessing major transactions and strategic business relationships and navigating corporate disputes.
Determine the facts – quickly and effectively – when you suspect internal control lapses, money laundering, kickback schemes, bribery and fraud, licensing violations, theft of intellectual property or civil rights violations.
Uncover the truth. What happened? Who was involved? How was the crime conceived, carried out and concealed? When did key events occur? Where were the failures in management, supervision or governance? And what strategic, tactical and fundamental steps should be taken – immediately and over time – to close windows of vulnerability?
Support your legal strategy by investigating adverse parties, their claims and backgrounds – prior to litigation or during legal proceedings.
Every time litigation looms, among the greatest risks to both plaintiff and defendant is that there is information “out there” that counsel doesn’t know. Undisclosed conflicts of interest. Misrepresentation of assets owned or controlled. A pivotal, hidden example of deceit or ill intent. Or a witness who is adept at not being found.
