Intelex provides you with the benefits of an in-house investigative research team without the costs and liabilities associated with one. Once retained, Intelex assumes responsibility for managing the ongoing relationship and works hand-in-hand with the client to make sure that every aspect of the project is effectively communicated in a timely manner. While Intelex’s case management is all handled in-house, the company maintains and utilizes a global network of resource team members who are all carefully screened and selected for their professionalism, discretion, and attention to detail.
