YAKE & ASSOCIATES, INC.

SERVICES: ASSET SEARCHES

 

Asset Searches: Financial institutions, law firms and corporate creditors are plagued by borrowers, judgment debtors and bankrupt debtors who default on obligations but seem to maintain business interests and substantial personal lifestyles. 

 

Through its investigations into the holdings of such matters Yake & Associates, Inc., has developed sophisticated sources and methods to uncover fraudulent acts. Additionally, illegal and fraudulent acts, whether perpetrated by employees, vendors, contractors or strangers, pose grave threats to the integrity of corporations, organizations and professional service firms nationwide. Ultimately, those acts threaten not only to harm the financial performance of a business, but represent a substantial risk to an organization's strategies, business objectives and reputation.

 

We have expanded this offering to include working with trustees in bankruptcy and insolvency matters, creditors' committees, and lenders in workout and restructuring departments, litigators and bankruptcy attorneys. We conduct investigations, litigation support and searches for concealed or undisclosed assets. In still other contexts, clients are interested in a financial profile or asset analysis of a person in connection with a potential business relationship, lawsuit or internal investigations.

 

Our methods can be effective both in recovering assets and in bringing debtors to the negotiating table. Our strategies, sources and methods for identifying assets rely on a broad range of investigative techniques and on highly sophisticated use of electronic databases. Our researchers canvass the databases for any lead or indication of an asset belonging to subjects, suspects and/or related business transactions. At the same time, a team of investigators and forensic accountants can devise effective field investigative strategies that include searching through sometimes obscure, but publicly available local records, reviewing financial documents and conducting discreet interviews with people associated with the subject. Our investigators can also draw upon Y&A's network of confidential sources.
