Particularly in legal proceedings, it can be imperative to know how much a person or company is worth—in other words, to have a full accounting of their assets and properties. For example, in trying to win a money judgement on a client’s behalf, attorneys sometimes need to know how much the opposing party is actually worth. There are a number of similar scenarios in which it’s critical to accurately catalog assets and quickly recover them—and in these scenarios, an asset investigation service can be incredibly useful.
Simply put, asset inventory and recovery can be exhausting. It is time-consuming, yet requires an unwavering commitment to accuracy and detail. As such, the job is most often handled by seasoned professionals who specialize in this type of work. We invite you to learn more about asset search services as offered by National Business Investigations, Inc.
What an Asset Investigation Entails
An asset investigation involves scrupulously combing through public records to get a feel for the party’s assets and properties. In some cases, there may be hidden assets that must be brought to light and properly disclosed within a legal setting. (Hidden assets are a prevalent problem.) As such, asset location services can entail information-gathering across a range of sources:
- Business assets
- Bank accounts
- Stock portfolios
- Vehicles and vessels
- Real estate property
Federal financial investigations also cover corporate filings, judgments, bankruptcies, liens, and more. Our investigatory team can work with you to identify and, if needed, recover assets in any of these categories.
The Role of Asset Investigations
Asset investigation services can be useful in several select scenarios. These include:
- Personal injury cases, in which lawyers need to size up the other party’s assets in order to drive a particular monetary settlement. Asset traces can be used in divorce proceedings, too.
- Companies satisfying their due diligence—for instance, seeking to determine whether a potential employee or investor is financially trustworthy.
- Individuals who are owed money, and need to legally determine whether the money they are owed can be fully recovered.
Instances of fraud—for example, someone refuses to pay what they owe you, claiming they are out of funds, but you doubt the veracity of this claim. A fraud investigation service can be critical here.
Knowing the Boundaries of Asset Investigations
It is important to note that there are sometimes limits to the asset investigation and recovery process. For example, while it is legally permissible to uncover the existence of a subject’s accounts at a public financial institution, it may be an invasion of privacy to inquire into the specific contents of these financial accounts.
This is one of the reasons why it’s important to work with professional asset location services; a legal investigator, like those at NBI, know what’s permissible and what’s not when conducting these searches.
