If the record that you seek or the information that you desire exists, we will be the research firm most likely to bring it to light. In several cases, the records that our clients have sought had been deliberately destroyed; in those cases, we have uncovered other, related and relevant documents upon which our clients were able to draw reasonable, supportable conclusions.
