Research

Where do the facts live? In dusty books and aging memories, subterranean layers of databases and forgotten archives. We hunt elusive data and people.

Decades of covering breaking news and in-depth investigative stories gives us expertise in finding and nailing the facts. We know how to get people to talk and to find answers with efficiency and accuracy.

We provide an array of research services always with clear and complete reports:

  • For companies and nonprofits facing a crisis, regulatory action or litigation, we check courts, archives, libraries, and online records to scope out everything in the public domain to limit surprises.
  • For lawyers and investigative entities, we find potential witnesses, search public records, interview relevant employees, sources and personnel and provide accurate assessments.
  • For authors, we scrub public records, libraries, archives, and online sources, vet credentials, provide annotated reviews of background material, arrange and conduct interviews, fact check and vet manuscripts.
