The Business of Business Investigations
New York Private Investigators
Private investigations and spying are often, mistakenly, considered to be one and the same. However, it’s important to deconstruct this assumption so that a new, more accurate representation of private investigations – and private investigators – can be established.
Certainly, spying and licensed Private Investigations are not synonymous. In fact, many private investigators in Rochester NY, as well as across the nation, take some degree of humor (or offense) to the implication that they are a spy.
From a practical matter, anyone can spy. However, not everyone can be a licensed private Investigator. New York, as well as the majority of other states, have licensing requirements, education standards, testing, and qualifications which must be met prior to the application process. Additionally, rigorous background checks must be conducted by not only the state but, often, by federal agencies as well.

Now that we’ve addressed a prevailing misconception head on, and hopefully given each site visitor a better idea of what we are (and are not) let us move on to the topic at hand: Business Investigations. (Click here to view our business investigations webpage.)
If you’ve found your way to this blog post, it can likely be assumed that you are a business owner, executive, or human resource professional.
In business, as you are well aware, there is (or, at least, should be) due diligence involved in the important business decisions that are made. For instance, before a marketing budget is approved, there will likely be some due diligence and ROI considerations. Certainly, some decisions will have less impact than others however, for those decisions that create significant vulnerability, companies are wise to consider business investigations from a licensed private investigator.
Let’s suppose, for example, that an established business is interested in purchasing a competitor that’s exiting the market. The need will undoubtedly exist for a forensic review of assets and/or potential liabilities, to determine whether this acquisition would be a golden opportunity or an unjustifiable risk. This is due diligence. And, it is so vital and so crucial to sound business decisions.
Yes, it’s true- it could be argued that business folk could easily determine viability if provided with the right documentation. However, this is assuming that any documentation provided is, in fact, a true reflection of the business and that nothing has been altered or withheld that would detract from buying appeal. Unfortunately, oftentimes, the snapshot that is provided includes only carefully chosen data that creates the seller’s desired narrative. And, this is exactly where private investigators can shine, as they conduct deep dives into the business and the people involved to uncover information that will allow for an informed decision.
Even if you aren’t looking to purchase a competitor, there are certainly other business investigations that can be of benefit.
For instance, hiring decisions. Are you looking to hire? As you know, some positions should inherently involve stringent investigation into a candidate’s background and character. A bookkeeper, for example.
Suppose you hired a new employee to manage your books. Let’s suppose this individual came highly recommended and was content with a salary a fraction of what you previously paid for the position. An added bonus? You’ve added “answering phones” to the job description so suddenly you’re paying less but getting more! You know, it’s brilliant that you did your due diligence and had a thorough, multi-state background check conducted on the candidate prior to hiring.
Or did you?
It’s these situations that have the potential to harm your business if you haven’t considered a business investigation to protect your interests. After all, you don’t want to end up like so many companies in which a bookkeeper, or someone with a great deal of access, was able to find a company vulnerability and funnel money right out from under your nose.
I think you get the idea. Business investigations are a big deal. Due diligence can make the difference between a make-or-break scenario. What can be inferred, then, is that the organization that is hired to conduct your business investigations and due diligence should be also given considerable thought and research.
At the beginning of this blog entry, I stated that there is a clear distinction between spying and licensed private investigations. As a New York business owner or executive, make sure that you do your due diligence when it comes to the New York Private Investigator that you hire. Make sure that the private investigator is licensed, has insurance, and – equally important – has experience. Make sure that the individual or agency understands your circumstances, can make recommendations accordingly, and is willing to manage your expectations rather than make false promises. Finally, make sure that there is a written Retainer Agreement in place which spells out the investigative assignment as well as the terms and conditions of the engagement. Remember, anyone can spy. But, a private investigator has the experience and credentials to obtain the information you need, and to do so without creating liability for your business.
