Making trusted, informed decisions is essential for any business to mitigate risk and maintain a competitive advantage. Whether onboarding employees, evaluating board members and shareholders or conducting corporate investigations and due diligence for various litigation and financial matters, the proper protocols must be in place.

Withum’s investigative and business intelligence team helps national and international companies conduct comprehensive investigative services on individuals and business entities. Comprehensive background and due diligence investigations provide individuals, corporate entities and law firms with a complete understanding of potential liabilities. These liabilities may include a complete history of activities such as criminal involvement, financial legitimacy, M&A activity, and other areas of risk.

Drawing on the knowledge of former FBI agents with decades of experience, our investigative and corporate intelligence team can uncover the necessary information you need to make intelligent, informed business decisions.
