Charles Griffin Intelligence was founded in 2009 by Philip Segal, a New York attorney and expert on complex international financial transactions. Based in the heart of New York City and working worldwide, Charles Griffin is dedicated to ethical fact-finding.
Why We Are Different
If you ask us for information that is easy to get but illegal to obtain, we will tell you we can't get it, and why. Unlike some investigative firms, Charles Griffin is headed by a lawyer who has the same ethical restrictions on what he can do as our attorney clients. At the same time, we believe that the legal training and long history of business and financial reporting that informs our work can bring to our clients a level of sophisticated fact finding that is hard to match in most of our competitors. Finally, our boutique size saves clients money, but we are transparent about what things cost. Unlike what some websites promise, there is no such thing as a comprehensive nationwide criminal background check for $69. We explain why searching records on-site and on-line costs what it does.
