Our senior investigator and profiler, Yael Rom, was a Senior Air Force Procurement Specialist for the Government of Israel. She worked as a liaison between Israeli Defense Force units, major U.S. corporate contractors, and the U.S. Armed Forces, managing budgets ranging from $10M to $55M for military equipment. Before working in procurement for the Israeli Military, she was head of recruiting, training, and financial investigation in Israel for Yaad-Chen Investigation and Recruiter at Amdocs and Microsoft.
We have the experience and technical savvy to help you gain the upper hand with background checks and corporate investigations.
EMPLOYEE FRAUD DISCOVERY AND PREVENTION
Our corporate investigations examine business operations to discover fraud or embezzlement within your company. A recent study* found that the typical organization loses 5% of revenues per year to fraud. The median loss caused by frauds in the study was $145,000. And 22% of those cases involved losses of at least $1 million!
You may suspect fraud or wrongdoing in your company but rightly wonder how to determine it legally. How do you monitor employees while respecting the law and their rights to privacy…even in the workplace? Remember, the evidence gathered must be admissible in court.

Of course, the best way to prevent employee fraud is to hire honest employees in the first place. Our backgrounds are thorough and accurate. We also help you comply with all local and federal laws that protect employees from discrimination (Fair Trade Reporting Act and Federal Trade Commission). You get good information on prospective employees quickly and within the law.
DUE DILIGENCE FOR MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS
We are also called on to investigate potential partners and to gather information for the analysis of corporate mergers and acquisitions. Good, accurate information can be the difference between decisions that generate bottom-line profit or financial disaster. We help with your due diligence before you enter into an agreement or transaction to confirm all material facts. You make your decisions based on the facts as they are, not necessarily as they’re presented to you.
BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE FOR BETTER DECISION MAKING
The people you buy from are also critical to the success of your corporation. We’ll investigate your key suppliers for their reliability and integrity within their marketplace. You may also be seeking damages from your suppliers, and our investigations can help you get what you are entitled to.
We can investigate your competition if you suspect fraud or theft. Are competitors illegally using your trademark or are there copyright or patent violations? We will get to the truth so your bottom line doesn’t suffer. We also help companies with financial searches, intellectual property investigations, and criminal inquiries of other companies.
