Intellectual Property

We have assisted intellectual property attorneys by developing evidence concerning the infringement of patents.

Since our inception, we have assisted intellectual property attorneys by developing evidence concerning the infringement of patent and trademark rights. Our information has been used to support claims of infringement that have been asserted in federal courts and before the U.S. International Trade Commission under Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930. Our investigations have been conducted in numerous industries, including semiconductors, computers, printers, automobile parts, mobile phones, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, heavy excavation equipment, food products, medical devices and pharmaceuticals.

Our extensive network of resources in Europe, Asia and South America has allowed us to obtain biographical information of principals of infringing companies, to determine the size and location of their operations, and to track infringing products from design to manufacture, assembly, testing, warehousing, marketing and distribution. Several of our in-house staff have strong technical backgrounds. This capability has been particularly useful in understanding and investigating high-tech products such as semiconductors.

Background Investigations

We provide background investigations used in connection with financial transactions and pre-employment screening.

We provide background investigations used in connection with financial transactions and pre-employment screening. Our comprehensive background investigations address these issues:


Our written reports are articulate analyses of our findings. Attached to the reports are the key documents cited in the reports. Our reports demonstrate the extensive research and analysis that was performed during our investigations, thus providing documented proof that a significant effort was made to examine the backgrounds of the senior management of prospective portfolio businesses and of executive-level job candidates. We also offer mid-level and basic reports that are similar to the comprehensive reports but address fewer issues.

Business Intelligence

In the contexts of litigation and competitor intelligence, we develop information concerning the principals of a company, the nature of the company's operations, and the state of its finances. We also develop information concerning the company's suppliers, competitors and professional service providers, and, if it is a manufacturer, the movement of its products from design to manufacturing, assembly and testing, marketing and sales, distribution and shipment. We are skilled at obtaining this information for both domestic and foreign companies and have especially strong resources in Asia.

Asset and Financial Investigations

We analyze financial documents for law firms and individuals to determine the means by which a party is hiding assets and where they might be hidden. We identify third parties who might have information concerning the assets or the techniques employed to hide them. Attorneys use this information as a basis for subpoenaing and deposing potentially knowledgeable parties. We have the resources to locate assets such as bank accounts (savings, checking, money market funds and certificates of deposit) and investment portfolios. Our techniques are in full compliance with federal and state laws relating to the acquisition of financial information.
