Why clients need our services

Whether in litigation or private recovery, private investigators have the expertise and resources to uncover debtor assets. Divorce proceedings, corporate mergers, and estate settlement are just the beginning of how Lauth’s intelligence services can give you a clear financial picture in uncertain circumstances.

Corporate Asset Location Investigations

Corporate mergers are one of the most common situations that require an asset location investigation. When a corporation is considering acquiring or merging with another corporation, it is in the best interest of the parent company to understand exactly what they are getting into with another company. Asset location investigations are one of the building blocks of their due-diligence when considering taking on another corporate entity. Lauth Investigations International’s asset location investigators can conduct asset location searches on the companies that are being considered for merger or acquisition and give the parent company the full picture in pursuit of caveat emptor.

Personal Asset Location Investigations

Asset location searchers might also be required in personal life as well as corporate life. For instance, in situations where individuals are considering legally attaching or detaching themselves from others, asset location investigations usually come up. If later in life, two accomplished people are considering getting married, it would be in their best interest to know everything about their partner before they tie the knot. On the reverse side, two married people who are getting a divorce may want to have an asset location investigation against their former partner to make sure that they are not currently or attempting to conceal assets from a court of law that would prevent their partner from getting a bigger piece of their assets.


In legal matters, primarily civil lawsuits, asset location investigations often come into play when a judge has rendered a judgement against a defendant that requires them to pay monetary damages to the plaintiff. When the plaintiff is delinquent in paying those damages to the plaintiff, legal counsel for the plaintiff will then likely engage in an asset location investigation. Just like the aforementioned uses, it gives the plaintiff a full picture of what the defendant could potentially be drawing from in order to meet the court’s requirement for damages, such as offshore accounts, estates, property, vehicles, boats, airplanes. These are assets that can be liquidated for payment.

Private investigators possess the diverse skillsets to expose the unseen. They conduct these comprehensive asset location searches by combing verified databases and interviewing individuals who have borne witness to the assets in some form. Once they have compiled the database reports, private investigators can take it a step further to independently document those assets. After all, the quality of any database, regardless of the type, is only as valuable as the level of quality control surrounding data entry, and therefore independent verification can go a long way in a court of law towards proving your assertion. One of the things private investigators are most well-known for is surveillance. Lauth asset location investigators use the best surveillance technology available to hidden assets in asset location investigations. Through surveillance, private investigators can document a person’s movements and travel, like lavish vacations, eating out at expensive restaurants, or making big purchases at retailers. Private investigators are able to photograph exteriors of the subject’s home to document the presence of vehicles, or extravagant home improvements such as a pool or new garage. These are actions that through due-diligence can be proven to be evidence of hidden assets. Lauth’s private investigator team is comprised of former military and law enforcement personnel who are familiar with the court system and are very comfortable experts on the witness stand. Because of our independence from a law firm, we can provide an additional layer of integrity to the asset location investigation.
