About The Founder
Olivia Robinson is a licensed private investigator.
Since 1982, her time-sensitive investigations have been used to help clients target and explore investment opportunities. She has identified potential acquisitions, positioned companies for sale, and helped to define strategies for hostile take-overs and corporate turnarounds.

Her ability to detect and document fraud, track and recover assets has led to the successful discovery and recovery from cases involving Ponzi schemes, complex financial fraud, insider trading, industry-wide fraud scams, global cybercrime, municipal fraud, identity theft, and hedge fund and investment scams. While most cases are domestic, she has helped clients on numerous assignments all over the world.
