Asset Recovery Investigations

Asset Recovery InvestigationsWhen it comes to asset recovery, it isn’t a judgment collection.

Asset recovery involves specialized knowledge along with the simultaneous application of common and civil litigation tactics, investigative principles, forensic accounting techniques, insolvency options, forfeiture schemes, and a mindset steeped in strategy and know-how.
