Depending on your practice area, you may need to have an investigation conducted for your client to assist with your case before it goes to trial. This means gathering information and, in some cases, evidence. In a legal setting, this is exactly what you need in order to turn a court case in your client’s favor. After all, an investigation can produce data you need to validate a person’s credentials or verify their witness statement. At the end of the day, you’ll need irrefutable facts.
When a job requires persistent inquiry, research and inspection, you can’t leave the task to just anyone in your own firm. Instead, you need someone with expertise in gathering and gaining access to the information you need. If you want to give yourself the best chance of winning your case in court, you need a private investigator. Here are some of the most common services that they provide today.
If you are dealing with a corporate client currently facing a trial, you may need to conduct a background investigation on one of its staff or management personnel. Their background must be credible and presentable to the jury. Consider having an investigator go over their past to verify that they haven’t done anything that can compromise them as a good and reliable witness.
In addition, you also need to ensure that person about to go to the stand is being truthful. This way, you will not find yourself surprised when that person is cross-examined. At the same time, it also helps to have an investigator confirm where the witness is staying constantly so that you always where you can meet with them if you need to prep them for court or simply conduct more interviews
In some of your cases, your firm may have to deal a client looking to use content that they may have found online.

If this is your current situation, you need an experienced asset researcher that can advise you on issues concerning fair-use content and public domain.
In today’s world, companies suffer from cyber attacks all the time. After all, data that can be stolen, hacked into or corrupted. In computer and accounting forensics, an investigator can determine when this type of attack had taken place. They can also tell you who was the person responsible for compromising company data.
