Venture Risk Investigations
Venture Risk Investigations helps individuals, corporations, law firms, and government entities. Our investigations involve surreptitious surveillance, interviews, data retrieval, IT forensics, witness identification and verification, and asset tracing. While we are based in New York, our extensive resources enable us to serve our clients anywhere in the world.
Accurate and up-to-date information is crucial to the success of any venture, whether that is a business transaction, an investment opportunity, a civil or criminal litigation, a regulatory or compliance matter, hiring a new employee, or a more personal pursuit. As recent history illustrates, even the most intelligent and savvy individuals can be targeted and victimized by complex fraud schemes. Having a dedicated, highly skilled, and intellectually agile investigative team on one’s side can help to identify, analyze, and mitigate risks, whether those risks are legal, financial, emotional, or physical.
