Litigation Investigations

Litigation InvestigationsEvidence leaves a trail, a fundamental principle within the legal realm. Law enforcement agencies furnish concrete proof, financial institutions provide crucial information, and depositions serve as a means to gather witness testimonies. Nevertheless, attorneys often find themselves in need of extensive information to bolster their cases. In our technologically driven society, witnesses and evidence can be located both offline and online. Consequently, many attorneys are turning to private investigators and private detectives to enhance their investigative arsenal, tailoring their litigation strategies to the specific needs of their clients. In this era of advanced technology, legal professionals recognize the importance of leveraging the expertise of private investigators.

HOW PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS BENEFIT VARIOUS LEGAL AREAS

In the legal arena, private investigators play a pivotal role across multiple domains, offering invaluable support in complex cases that demand discovering concealed evidence and identifying new witnesses. This strategic partnership enhances the overall strength of legal arguments, increasing the likelihood of favorable outcomes in the courtroom.

  • Employment and Labor Litigation: Private investigators are indispensable assets for attorneys involved in employment and labor-related disputes. These investigations encompass a wide range of issues, including employee misconduct, internal threats, FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act) abuse, theft and fraud, EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) complaints, regulatory violations, misuse of company assets, theft of trade secrets, and breaches of non-compete and non-disclosure agreements.
  • Criminal Defense Investigation: Private investigators contribute to the criminal defense field by validating law enforcement actions or, when necessary, correcting them. Their role includes gathering witnesses, sources, and fresh evidence to bolster criminal defense cases, ensuring a comprehensive and robust defense strategy.
  • Civil Litigation: Private investigators fill the gaps that subpoenas and discovery requests may leave unfilled in civil litigation. They excel in locating new witnesses, conducting surveillance, interviewing involved parties, performing background checks, conducting computer forensic searches, and elucidating the intricate relationships among the parties involved. These services enhance the depth and quality of evidence available for civil cases.
  • Intellectual Property Investigations: The flexibility and precision private investigators offer are indispensable in various legal domains, including intellectual property rights. Accurate information collection and delivery are pivotal in patents, trademarks, channel checks, and product diversion cases. Private investigators ensure the integrity of evidence and provide a comprehensive understanding of the issues at hand, facilitating effective legal strategies.
Methods Employed in Litigation Investigations
  • Statement Taking and Interviews: This investigative technique involves gathering firsthand accounts and testimonies from relevant individuals. Statements and interviews are conducted to extract crucial information that can support legal arguments or uncover hidden facts.
  • Domestic Surveillance: Domestic surveillance entails the discreet observation and monitoring of individuals, locations, or activities. This method aids in collecting evidence that may be pivotal in litigation, especially in cases involving personal behavior or activities.
  • Background Checks: Background checks involve comprehensive investigations into an individual’s history, including their education, employment, criminal records, and financial background. This method helps attorneys assess the credibility and reliability of parties involved in legal proceedings.
  • Skiptrace & Locate Reports: Skiptracing refers to the process of tracking down individuals who have deliberately concealed their whereabouts or identity. Locate reports are generated to uncover such individuals’ current location and contact details, assisting in serving legal documents or securing witnesses.
  • Computer Forensics and Computer Usage Verification: Computer forensics encompasses the systematic examination of digital devices and data to recover, analyze, and preserve electronic evidence. This method is crucial in cybercrimes, data breaches, or electronic documentation cases.
  • Asset Investigation and Analysis: Asset investigation comprehensively scrutinizes an individual’s financial holdings, properties, and liabilities. This technique helps determine the financial capacity of parties involved in litigation and aids in the execution of judgments or settlements.
The Benefits of Engaging a Private Investigator

In legal proceedings, enlisting a private investigator’s services under an attorney’s guidance offers many advantages. A licensed private investigator possesses the expertise to deliver extensive and meticulously researched information tailored to meet an attorney’s specific needs and to meet the criteria for admissible evidence in court.

  • Expertise and Training: Private investigators bring years of experience and specialized training to the table. They understand the legal intricacies and requirements for gathering evidence, ensuring that the information collected is legally sound and valuable in litigation.
  • Extensive Networks and Tools: Private investigators have access to an extensive network of resources and cutting-edge tools that enable them to conduct thorough investigations. These resources include databases, surveillance equipment, and industry contacts that prove invaluable in uncovering vital evidence.
  • Collaborative Support: Private investigators often collaborate with specialists in various fields, further enhancing the depth and accuracy of their investigations. This ensures that every aspect of the case is thoroughly examined, leaving no stone unturned.
  • Confidentiality: Maintaining the utmost discretion and confidentiality is a hallmark of private investigators. They are adept at safeguarding sensitive communications and gathered information, protecting the privacy and interests of their clients.
  • Expanded Reach and Capabilities: Private investigators possess a broader reach and more extensive capabilities than a law firm’s standard research team. Their ability to navigate physical and digital realms provides a comprehensive approach to uncovering crucial evidence.

Hiring a private investigator with legal counsel significantly enhances the effectiveness of litigation investigations. With their specialized skills, access to resources, and commitment to confidentiality, private investigators play a pivotal role in building compelling cases and thoroughly examining all pertinent aspects of a legal matter.
