How It Works

The Situation

An international law firm wanted to conduct a background check before hiring a new partner.

The Solution

After research through official criminal records did not yield any information, additional research through commercial databases discovered a match. Information provided by the court indicated the candidate had been arrested and convicted of manufacturing and distributing controlled dangerous substances. Although the candidate held a valid college degree, this degree was completed via mail while he was incarcerated.

The Significance

Due to previously undiscovered information regarding the candidate’s criminal background and education, the client was able to make a more effective hiring decision.
