I’ve worked with, and had tremendous success, with Reed Research since the early 2000’s in many different capacities. Whether a prolonged investigation of multiple parties, cyber investigation, geo tagging, social media, identity analysis or an executive protection mandate, the Team at Reed consistently exceeds my expectations. They provide the information and strategic approach needed to effectively and efficiently assess my cases. Not only is the Team made up of industry leaders, but they are also great people and a pleasure to deal with.
