Corporate Investigations Made Easy, by Corporate Counsel



What's Your Situation?


Employee Misconduct

Good employees make your company successful, but just one bad apple can cause costly problems in your business.


Internal Theft

Employees have access to virtually all of your assets and information. Unfortunately that empowerment may entice a few to cross the line.


Employee Time Abuse

Time off programs like FMLA, Workers Compensation, and Disability need to be enforced to ensure they are utilized only for their intended purpose.


Supplier Fraud

You rely on trusted suppliers to keep your best interests in mind, but sometimes that circle of trust can be broken.


Non-Compete Violation

Non-compete violations are more effectively enforced when it involves any mis-use of information or intentional acts that negatively impact your business. These are commonly labeled a "non-disclosure breach" and can be very enforceable.

Legal Matter

Your attorneys may need facts and information to support a legal strategy. Often this is not available in public records, and will require a true investigation.


Intellectual Property Rights

Protecting your brand is key to profitability and maintaining an edge on competitors.


Public Relations Issue

An unplanned negative event always has at least two perspectives. Managing the spread of information can influence the opinions of investors, media, and the public.


Past Due Receivables

A handful of delinquent accounts can really put a dent in your planned profits. PHENIX presents an alternative to legal action or collection agency fees.


Contract Breach

Your organization relies on promises that sometimes are not kept. Those failed agreements can be costly and may require intervention to remedy or prepare for legal action.
