Uncover Debtor Assets

Leave no stone unturned.

For many companies, filing a lawsuit may be the most beneficial way to resolve a dispute. Before going through the trouble of suing a company, it is important that you know as much as possible about their available assets. Many businesses might not have the resources needed to pay a settlement in full, or are dishonest about the value of their property. Even if a judge rules in your favor, they cannot collect the settlement from the opposing entity. Hiring a licensed private investigator to conduct a due diligence investigation of a corporation’s assets can help a company decide if a lawsuit will be worth it.

What does an Asset Search Look for?

Corporations that are at risk of losing a substantial amount of money will often utilize overseas accounts or businesses. Many countries have different laws regarding corporations and the United States has no jurisdiction in those regions. A due diligence investigation of a corporation’s assets can uncover wired money or hidden property that is located both in the United States and in other countries. These types of searches are very specific and may require several different techniques, some of which include an analysis of:

  • Bank accounts

  • All locations of the corporation

  • On-site assets such as machinery and equipment

  • Vendors, suppliers, and financial institutions

  • Names of corporate officers and associates

  • Credit and payment statements spanning 12-36 months”
