Asset Searches

We care about what matters to you

An asset search or asset analysis is a type of investigation involving the comprehensive probe of both private and public records for the purpose of confirming and documenting information about a Subject’s assets and their history. They are often used as a tool to expose hidden assets the Subject(s) has concealed for a myriad of reasons, but they can also be used to track a person’s movements and activities based on how these assets are being utilized, if at all.  

Lauth private investigators use diverse methodology and analysis in conducting asset search investigations through licensed databases for a thorough, contextual accounting of a Subject’s assets, both hidden and otherwise, often in matters of estate planning, estate escheatment, or probate law. A comprehensive asset search involves the probe of public records, private records, background checks, digital or forensic computer data, and even field surveillance. These assets must be assessed for true value so a full accounting of the assets can be catalogued. Our private investigators and intelligence analysts can compile a full list of assets associated with a Subject or corporate entity and prepare a contextualized report for clients so they have the full picture in their hands.
