Laws Broken During Asset Searches Can Jeopardize Your Case 
Asset searching is a murky business. People who hide their assets do so with the intention of eluding discovery, and most go to great lengths to foil investigation and prevent detection. They may use someone else's name to hide their assets or set up trusts, shell corporations, partnerships, or multiple bank and investment accounts. To further complicate the matter, it is not always clear exactly what constitutes an asset, which may confound the search process. 
However, one thing about asset searches is always clear; certain search methods are legal and others are not. Failure to abide by asset search laws can cost you time, money, professional trust, and client confidence that you can't afford to lose.  Adherence to law is the hallmark of a professional investigator. At Arkansas Investigations we are well-versed in the laws that govern asset searches, and we are skilled at using whatever legal means are necessary to find the information you need.

The more informed you are about the legalities of asset searches the more successful you will be at finding the right investigator to conduct your search. For example, when conducting an asset search it is legally permissible to locate accounts the person has with signatory authority; to find out how much is in, or runs through, the account(s); to find assets and/or pictures of assets on social media networks such as...

Due Diligence Before Hiring a CEO, CFO, COO or Physician
Hiring the right person can make your clients business-hiring the wrong one can break it. How can you ensure your clients make the best choice? They need to know the applicant is the best available, that they are who they say they are, and how their past can adversely affect them.
A good pre-employment background investigation produces this data and can save your client time, money and embarrassment. It helps keep their organization safe. Each year more business owners face financial trouble that could have been avoided with effective pre-employment research. Arkansas Investigations can cite cases in the Little Rock area where such research would have saved companies $300,000 to $400,000, not to mention the loss in customer confidence.

Simply asking a prospective hire for references and not performing an independent background check is ineffective and "unlikely to turn up any evidence of past misconduct," according to the Certified Fraud Examiners' 2008 Report to the Nation.

Knowing that a prospective hire who would be using your clients vehicles has a bad driving record or a drug problem is vital. Pre-employment background investigations are virtually required in today's business climate. Arkansas Investigations' work is thorough and discreet, done without the subject knowing it ever happened. We produce a full set of records that may or may not contain anything that might alarm your client, the employer.

Our investigation goes beyond a basic background check, which looks at available records, to a proactive inspection of the candidate's criminal, financial, social, property ownership and credit history, and includes an extended reference check and employment verification. We study the applicant's character: Are they honest, trustworthy, reliable? Are they who they say? Can they do what they say?
Our investigation can range from general investigations for candidates in entry and intermediate level positions to detailed investigations for senior level positions and doctors. Detailed investigations uncover the more in depth details of someone's life and can be done for level "C" hires (CEO, CFO, COO) and doctors.

When it comes to doctors, time and energy should be expended to ensure... Read More
