In the modern society, it is very important not only to have facts to prove rightness, but also to be able to operate with them. Legal investigation may be necessary for both individuals and organizations. Not everyone can collect data independently, as well as correctly analyze it from a legal point of view. In this case, it is advisable to seek for professional help.

For example, if there is evidence of embezzlement of monetary funds from accounts of companies, specialists can help to collect all the necessary documents and information for applying to law enforcement agencies in order to initiate criminal proceedings and provide legal assistance with further participation in the case as a victim.Collection of evidence within a criminal case
In the course of defense within a criminal case, a lawyer has the right to hold an own investigation in parallel with law enforcement agencies, when he is not only able to find out true facts, but to provide evidence to the court, taking significant influence over the results of the criminal case. It’s necessary to take into account the general practice, where we can see that due to various circumstances investigative bodies are not always able to conduct thorough and impartial examinations over a criminal case; while a lawyer always respect the interests of a principal in such cases. The professional approach is always important, no matter what circumstances are there. A lawyer will be able to draw an application to law enforcement agencies and gather the evidence base necessary to initiate a criminal case, as well as to help gathering and recording evidence, which, for various reasons, were missed by investigative bodies.Gathering of information about the potential client of a company
