Examples of Specialized Background Investigations
Attorney's & Expert Witness Service Provider Background - Many companies and individuals are now conducting background investigation on attorneys and expert witness's they retain. You don't get a second chance in court and selecting the wrong legal counsel or expert witness can change your life forever. An unvetted expert witness can do equal damage as well. The Expert Witness is much like a Consultant, and is not subject to testing or state licensing. Anyone can claim this designation. We conduct an extensive investigation looking for client disputes, legal malpractice settlements, bar complaints, review past cases, arrests, and conduct problems.
Corporate/Business Background Investigation - We conduct extensive business background investigations on public/private companies. This includes U.S. based and international companies. Our business background investigations are a merger of personal and corporate details. This includes financial and operational aspects of the company, civil or criminal actions, regulatory enforcement from the SEC or Federal Trade Commission, and a host of other issues. We customize our business background investigations to provide you with the answers you need on every aspect of the company and management.
General Background Investigations - We provide general background investigation services on individuals located in the USA and in select foreign countries. We require a valid legal purpose prior to any investigation. General background investigations generally focus on residential history, state/federal criminal history records, national warrants check, divorce records, driving history, and state & federal tax liens, as one example. We have several custom programs that are suitable for such purposes, contact us for further details.
Criminal/Civil Background Investigations - In some cases companies require extensive criminal/civil records on a company or the Officers/Directors. Our criminal/civil background investigations examine city, county, state, federal records. We can also obtain international records depending upon the country. We can assemble complete criminal/civil case records to include arrest/indictment documents, mug shots, discovery & interrogatories, exhibits, and other documents that are contained in a criminal/civil case. This service is valuable when a company needs to know the entire details of a criminal/civil case from initial filing to case closure.
Executive Level Background Investigation - Companies hiring executives with compensation over $150K in compensation often demand a more detailed background. Executive level background investigations involve more depth and take more time to complete. Many executives have worked overseas and are involved in personal and legal incidents that would not be located during a routine background investigation in the USA. Our executive level backgrounds are extensive and cover criminal, civil, financial, securities, lifestyle and reputation inquiries. This high level background investigations are also ideal for banks, non profits, and foundations who are looking to conduct background checks on potential board members.
Hedge Fund, Real Estate, Oil Gas Investment Background - In a recession investment scams actually grow in numbers as people and companies are looking to recover losses from bad investments.
