Business today is about partnerships, be they with investors, clients, employees, customers or advisors. But for the breadth of experience and resources they bring, there’s risk too.

Contract disputes. Fraud. Even outright theft.

At the Heartland Investigative Group, we know it’s a struggle to even get the attention of regulators and authorities-let alone get justice- when your financial or business relationships take an improper turn. You don’t see high-speed accounting pursuits on the evening news.

We’ve assembled some of the most experienced, savvy financial investigators in the nation, expert at sorting the facts from the fraud. They’ve been trained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Office of the Inspector General and the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, just to name a few.

And that’s just where we start. Everything we do is built around developing information to assist our clients: discovering the exact nature of the fraud scheme, documenting the hidden assets, seeing through the Byzantine front of straw entities.

We’re fully licensed and accredited. We’ve undergone the most comprehensive professional training available today. We offer the kind of client service you demand: meticulously documented, timely, discrete and effective.

We operate in strict accord with both the law and the same high standards that are expected of you.

Our technological capabilities are greatly enhanced with our investment in I2, the leading worldwide provider of visual investigative analysis, providing our clients with graphical interpretation of our findings.

Heartland has recently completed several international asset investigations, an important consideration in this global economy.
