Background Investigations

Background Investigations

Background Check Investigators

Trusted Since 1994

Pre-Litigation / Litigation

Background Investigations

A strategic and thoroughly conducted Background Investigation provides law firms with critical and relevant information about an individual or an entity.

Historically, TIN findings have proven to be crucial in determining and calling into question the credibility of a potential litigant (claimant, offender, debtor, etc.), an adverse party and/or a witness in a suit.

Executive Profiles

Background Investigations

An executive level due diligence Background Investigation of Shareholders, Directors, C-level officers and/or Expert Witnesses allows TIN clients to verify and/or establish an accurate profile as to an Executive’s credentials, certifications, degrees, etc.

Mergers / Acquisitions

Background Investigations

TIN Corporate clients often acquire businesses in which little is known about the company’s management team. Historically, TIN has uncovered derogatory information, industry intelligence and/or record filings involving VPs and Corporate Managers in over 50% of the M&A due diligence cases handled.

A highly capable, vetted and credible management team can add significant value to this commercial transaction.

Theft / Embezzlement

Background Investigations

Every year, billions of dollars are lost by businesses to employee theft / embezzlement. Surprisingly, many employers fail to conduct a thorough investigation for purposes of identifying criminal history, derogatory filings, etc. in an employee’s background.

If you suspect an employee or contractor of theft or embezzlement, TIN conducts a level of due diligence and data recovery that will reveal an employee’s intent or propensity to do harm to their employer.

Workplace Violence

Background Investigations

Workplace violence is difficult to predict and can strike a company at any time. If an employee, a terminated employee, or an outside party poses a threat to the company, its personnel and/or its assets, establishing an accurate profile can give an employer necessary insight to this person’s past.

This background profile allows for a realistic assessment of the threat level and is compiled into a report for client review. A strategic approach to further monitoring this person’s whereabouts, activities, associates, etc. is then proposed for client consideration.

Pre-Employment

Background Investigations

Many employers rely upon information provided on a candidate’s bio/resume or utilize internet-based services to conduct a pre-employment background investigation. Unfortunately, internet-based background services often provide inaccurate, incomplete, or outdated information.

Offering various levels of due diligence, TIN’s background focus is based primarily on government and/or court documentation. This level of research is more in depth than most background methodologies and often produces information, documentation and/or evidence that does not appear in reports obtained through standard, on-line background services.

Personal / Family

Background Investigations

Even the closest of families may not be aware of important, sensitive details about one another’s past. For a host of reasons, a current or ex-spouse, sibling, relative, acquaintance, estranged family member or someone new to the family may conceal and/or be deceptive as to something in their past.

When a situation such as this occurs, TIN will correctly identify the person of suspicion, establish clarity as to this person’s background, and develop a report and profile that addresses all areas of concern for our client.

Social Media

Background Investigations

An estimated 3 billion people currently use social media, and this number increases every year. TIN has developed a unique, strategic methodology to accessing and viewing an individual’s account activity. A TIN social media investigation often provides our clients with insight as to an individual’s associates, interests, communications, whereabouts and daily activities.

This level of Social Media research allows for an in depth look in an individual’s personal life, and often produces information, evidence, etc. not found in standard public record filings.

FAQs

1. What are the typical costs associated with conducting a background investigation?
Every background assignment is unique and should be customized to address the client’s concern for each matter. The costs associated with conducting a background investigation will vary and is based on the scope of the assignment.
2. What’s the expected turnaround time for a background investigation?
Typically, background investigations can be completed within three (3) to five (5) days. However, this can vary due to the level of due diligence required, the jurisdictions identified for investigation, and the volume of information that is discovered.
3. What’s the difference between a background investigation conducted by TIN and an on-line internet background service?
On-line background service providers often obtain their information from databases, instead of verified court records. Databases are a great source for informational leads but these results should never be viewed as complete or factually accurate.

TIN’s background methodology produces a more thorough and comprehensive investigation and includes government data and courthouse records.

4. Does TIN submit a report once the assignment is completed?
Yes, TIN will produce a professionally detailed and court-admissible report upon completion of each background assignment.
