Financial Investigations, Crisis Management, Asset Recovery
We specialize first and foremost in major financial crimes relating to inheritance, wills, probate, theft, M&A, trusts, estates, and both business and personal transactions. In certain situations, we can facilitate the return of lost or stolen assets.
Whatever your problem is, we have the team to address it. Aside from being investigators, we are problem-solvers and crisis managers. Your financial problem is our mission. And we don’t care how big the problem is. Strider’s team has deep experience in crisis-management ranging from battlefield operations to search & rescue, stolen assets to missing children, and failing businesses to inheritance theft.
We do not charge for an initial consultation.
Some problems can be solved on the phone.
The Strider Team has successfully worked hundreds of cases and our greater network has worked thousands. If we can’t address your issue, we will refer you to someone who can.
OUR NETWORK = YOUR TEAM
Strider’s team and international network includes former CEO’s, U.S. Marine prosecutors, Harvard MBA’s, criminal-defense attorneys, former Federal Law Enforcement Officers, retired British and German detectives, former APD, NYPD and LAPD officers and both CFE’s and CPA’s. We have a support network through professional organizations such as TALI, Harvard Alumni, and several big city police departments. Our network extends to all fifty states and most countries on the planet.
Specifically we have worked in Britain, France, Germany, Liechtenstein, Hungary, Switzerland, China, Japan, Holland, and Norway. We have experience in international holding companies, international asset movement and protection, and international finance.

Fastest Fraud Resolution
No asset is too big or too complicated to be the target of financial predators. Any scheme you can imagine – is possible. Don’t underestimate what a financial predator might do, including using violence.
We have seen theft of the elderly by trusted domestic help, CEO’s and book keepers who exaggerated profits and assets, guardians who murdered their patient and then forged their will, live-in partners who stole assets that should have gone to the partner’s children and much more. Financial predators are tough to deal with, but they are our specialty. Let us handle them for you.
If you’re unsure whether you are a victim, or if you are about to be, give us a call and we’ll talk through it with you. Even if you don’t have the expertise in dealing with criminals and predators that we do. If your instincts are telling you something is wrong, it probably is.
Financial Predators Have an Edge…and a Weakness
It’s likely that your predator has done this before and planned it out carefully. Meanwhile, it’s your first time. So aside from an experiential and skill advantage, they’re also ahead of you time-wise.
That’s a lot of catching up to do.
When you put Strider on the job, we begin to nullify these advantages for you. There are three primary methods:
1. Professional investigations that document past activity
2. Surveillance that captures current activities and identifies associates, and
3. Undercover operations to find assets, evidence and intentions.
Which of these would help address your situation?
When you put us on the job, we will shorten the timeline to a result. We will help you win.
Types of Financial Investigations
Financial & Business Investigations
At the top of the predator food chain are the financial and business predators who know how to cook the books, reroute funds, and manipulate both people and systems. If you have one, take immediate action.
Probate and Will Investigations
Probate is an especially risky time for estates as roommates, current partners, household help and even neighbors might help themselves to the possessions of the decedent. Predators have taken estate assets, modified wills, and defrauded beneficiaries.
Transition & Estate Risk Management
Transitions are ripe opportunities for financial predators; death-in-the-family, firings, selling a business, transporting valuables and more. Estates need a guardian during these transitions as predators are usually aware and watching.
Crises come in all forms and most families do not have contingency plans. Objective, outside professionals can be a game-changer no matter how bad things look. We are those professionals.
Trustees do not go through a training or certification process. They do not have any educational or professional requirements. Therefore, trusts are especially vulnerable to chicanery.
Executive Fiduciary Failure
CEO’s and other executives enjoy a fair amount of independence and power. When they go bad, it’s hard to detect. When looking at potential executive fraud, we’ll have at least one former CEO on the investigative team.
