Deeper than Databases

A database search isn't an asset search. It is only a starting point. Successful and comprehensive asset discovery relies on a wide range of methods and resources. It requires experience, persistence and – most importantly – insight.

Complex Casework

We have coordinated investigations with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), U.S. Attorney's Office, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
