Five Practices That Law Firms Should Consider When Seeking a PI
1. License and Insurance, Please
Don’t be fooled by phony investigators. Before hiring a private investigator, take the time to ask for copies of proper licensing and insurance documents. In the end, it will shield your firm from liability issues and you can guarantee you are utilizing the services of a legitimate agency.
The second step in the process is to communicate the specifics of the case, anything and everything you know about it. The better you communicate your needs to us, the better we can serve you and tell you outright if we are legally able to attain the information you request.

5. Documenting the Agreement
Be sure to document the terms of the agreement with the private investigator you choose. For example, if you are using a retainer fee as the frame for your budget, make sure that is stated in the agreement. There should be no questions or guessing games. This documentation is just another way to protect you and your firm.
