Los Angeles private investigation case studies:
Here are a few real-life examples of recent private investigation cases we’ve had in Los Angeles:
Los Angeles Case Study:
A large metal manufacturing firm in Los Angeles was referred to us by their corporate attorney. We met with the company at their corporate office.
The problem was that they had $500,000 of materials that had gone missing in Mexico. They wanted us to discover the source of the theft and recover the materials.
After performing surveillance in Mexico City and Tijuana, our private investigators located the stolen items. We also discovered the theft was perpetrated by the client’s employees in both Tijuana and San Diego. As a direct result of the investigation, 3 people were arrested and prosecuted by the Mexican Federal Police.
Martin Investigative Services is one of the only US-based firms to perform private investigation in Mexico. (The alternative of hiring a private investigator based in Mexico is a risky proposition.) Contact us for a free, confidential consultation.
Los Angeles Case Study:
The office administrator at a Los Angeles law firm visited our Los Angeles office. The problem: they knew they had an internal leak. When they went to court they were getting hit over the head – as opposing counsel had detailed information which they should not have had.
As technology has progressed, eavesdropping and video recording devices have become increasingly present in the business world. They are small, and increasingly more affordable. Martin Investigative Services has private investigators that thoroughly sweep any area. We stay on top of current trends and technologies, so your private business remains your private business.
