Background & Asset Checks
Any investment requires a little bit of homework. Whether consulting Wall Street Journal before investing in a mutual fund or reviewing the Kelly Blue Book before buying a new car, it is always important to get information to minimize the risk. We help our clients by providing information so they can make good decisions. Whether conducting a high level employee background investigation or researching the litigation history of a prospective business partner, we can help make the decision an educated one. We also routinely investigate assets to determine solvency for pre-litigation, as well as determining what is owned by judgment debtors. Assets identified include real property, vehicles, boats, airplanes, corporate affiliations, and other information. Searches are conducted on both businesses and individuals.
