Asset Searches for Attorneys

When the assets of a company or individual become a decision factor, an asset search can enhance the decision process. An asset search is the best and most cost effective way to establish or verify a company or individual's assets.
Asset Investigations are typically used for one of three primary reasons:

  • Pre-Judgment Discovery: Often used by clients (mainly law firms) to determine if the subject is worth pursuing in litigation. Often also used to determine a baseline of the subject's assets to later detect if they have moved or sold assets in order to hide them from the plaintiffs or the courts.

  • Post-Judgment Recovery: Most often used to locate where the subject has their assets in order to to start the seizure process to fulfill the judgment settlement. With a judgment available against the subject, our investigative sources can often delve much deeper than normal to locate and quantify the subject's assets.

  • Due-Diligence: Often used to determine if a potential business partner has the assets claimed.
