Good attorneys know that outsourcing strategic research and information-gathering to a private investigator is the smart move, no matter what type of case they’re working on, legal matter they’re managing, or clients they are representing. The specialized skills of a professional investigator supplement legal work to create a stronger case, support a theory, and provide integral details. The work is all done within the confines of the law, so documentation and evidence that is gathered can be used in court, mediation, or negotiations. ASG has a long-standing reputation for producing high-quality legal investigations for attorneys as well as additional attorney services.
Lawsuits and legal matters are often about money. Asset searches shed light on relevant parties or entities, and ASG is often called upon to gather information about tangible assets and collectible assets, conduct research for divorce asset searches, and carry out asset searches for executive hires and vendors and contractors.
Whether family law, employment law, criminal defense, or otherwise, investigators are an invaluable resource in litigation support, establishing and documenting the facts of a case to support an attorney’s efforts. Outsourcing research and fact-gathering to a professional litigation investigation ensures that all leads and potential avenues for information are exhausted.
ASG’s professional legal investigators are prepared to provide legal support to handle any matter, but some of the most common requests for our services include:
- Tracking down witnesses.
- Taking statements and conducting interviews.
- Carrying out asset searches.
- Undertaking computer forensics
- Identifying spoliation of evidence.
- Conducting background checks.
- Locating people in large numbers.
- Doing surveillance.
Probate Research, Locating Heirs, Genealogy Experts
Part of dispersing an estate, claimed or unclaimed, involves identifying and locating missing and unknown heirs. This probate research is conducted nationwide to verify relationships, determine potential heirs, and locate beneficiaries.
Intellectual Property Investigations
Intellectual property investigations are a unique challenge because the information that needs to be gathered is often nuanced and intangible. Our domestic and international investigations often focus on patents and product diversion and parallel importation, as well as channel checking, and trademark clearances.
Collectability Investigations Fraudulent Conveyance Investigations
Pre-litigation asset searches, collectability investigations, and fraudulent conveyance investigations let an attorney and client know whether suing is worth the time and expense. If there is no money or assets, or even potential assets, to be collected, the effort would be fruitless.
Client Background Check
As a discerning legal professional, conducing due diligence to make sure that a client is worthy of taking on is essential. Client background checks give you vital information about clients so you know if you can truly help them, whether their complaint is legitimate, and if their case is a good investment of your time and resources.
