Background Checks

Don't take their word for it. Whether it’s a prospective business partner, an expert witness, or a litigation adversary, you can’t always rely on people to give you the full picture. Background checks are surprisingly affordable and can keep you from making mistakes that could cost you dearly in the future. Let us help you make the right decision when your reputation or investment is on the line.

 

Here are just a few of the scenarios in which background checks can provide crucial information:

 

Expert Witnesses

Know everything there is to know about your expert and your opponent's expert before you show up at depositions. We can verify academic degrees, look for criminal infractions, civil litigation, and negative press, and conduct a social media search to root out any adverse information.

Employees, Business Partners, or Subcontractors

You're about to hire a new CEO or go into business with a new partner. Her credentials seem impressive, but how do you find out what she's like to work with on a day-to-day basis? A thorough background search can reveal lawsuits, bankruptcies, personality quirks, and other potential problems you should know about before you put your name on the line.

 

Board Members

Your company is in the midst of a proxy fight. A new slate of board members has been proposed by a faction of shareholders. We can look into their professional and personal history to see if they're suitable candidates for the board, or if something in their past might knock them out of the running.
