The publishers of Vogue, Vanity Fair, and The New Yorker magazines ranked us among the top five private investigation companies in America. Please see our accolades below from highly regarded attorneys.
For the past twenty-nine years, we have worked alongside several of New York’s exceptional attorneys. Assisting attorneys with their complex litigated matters is our core asset. An example of our investigative prowess was an alleged “slam dunk” Federal Bribery conviction. Our investigative findings led to the dismissal of the case due to “outrages government conduct” The FBI, DEA, IRS, and US Customs and Immigration all participated in the investigations at the cost of two million dollars.
Another client of ours represented one of the largest banks in Europe who learned that an independent film company in the USA they lent money to embezzled millions of dollars. With a court order, we were assigned to physically secure the offices of the film company and to preserve all existing documents. While patrolling the offices of the film company, we came across a closet containing janitor supplies, and a four-drawer file cabinet. That hidden file cabinet contained documents that established an irrefutable pattern of embezzlement. We were then assigned to try and locate where the embezzlers hid the money. Our investigation led us to Central and South America, where the perpetrators made a sizable investment in a mall and movie theater complex. We concluded the assignment after we identified the offshore bank account where the balance of the embezzled funds was deposited. Our investigation led to a very favorable monetary settlement for the bank.

A CASE STUDY
A highly regarded international New York law firm retained us to assist them with a relatively complex breach of contract suit seeking ten million dollars in damages. Our client represented the defendants and asked us to locate a former employee of the plaintiff they wanted as a possible witness. After days searching for her through multiple channels, we were unable to locate her. Our client recalled he read something in the discovery files about that employee possibly facing criminal charges for stock fraud. We found the article and learned that she pleaded guilty. Not knowing where she was incarcerated, we made a Hail Mary attempt and called the judge’s chamber, who sentenced her. The clerk was incredibly helpful and gave us the name and telephone number of the employee’s parole officer. By now, depositions were underway when we received a call from our client telling us in no uncertain terms that we had to find that witness as it was crucial to our defense. We called the parole officer, introduced ourselves, and asked if we could have her contact number. No, said the parole officer, but she volunteered to call her and give her our message. A few minutes passed when our phone rang, and to our amazement, it was the witness. She said the only reason she returned our call was that her father was a Private Investigator, and she knew how difficult it was for us to locate her. During the CEO of the plaintiff company deposition he discovered we would be deposing his former employee, he grabbed his chest, thinking he was having a heart attack the EMS rushed him to a local emergency room. The case settled for five million!!
