We practice what we teach
Business Background Investigations
From the team that wrote the book on Business Background Investigations, we help discover sensitive information which often creates the negotiating platform for our clients. Our expertise includes researching information on foreign business interests, small private companies, back-grounding individuals and products. We can help locate financial sources, reputational issues and other factors that would be cause for concern.
Research and analysis focusing on the external competitive environment. Competitive information may be obtained from public or subscription sources, from networking with competitor staff or customers, or from field research interviews. All intelligence work is conducted within legal and ethical boundaries as required.
Compliance Investigative Diligence
With dozens of government mandated compliance requirements, it is difficult to manage the multiple number of third party vendors, supply chain partnerships and hired-on contractors. We offer a practical investigative service to check out the companies and individuals you are conducting business with.
