El Segundo, CA (PRWEB) December 04, 2012
Corra Group has expanded its services for extended year background checks in order to meet the requirements of industries in need of conducting background searches beyond the typical seven year framework. In addition to its employment screening service, Corra Group will conduct county criminal records and county civil records retrievals from every courthouse in the United States.
“We have identified a need where certain industries are looking to conduct the kind of vetting that extends well beyond the typical seven year framework,” said Gordon Basichis, Corra Group Co-Founder. “Private equity groups and financial investment concerns before getting involved in co-ventures and loans, will often want to conduct a more thorough background search of the principals of the companies with whom they are about to engage.
“The same holds true for attorneys and security investigators,” said Basichis. “Such business entities as law firms and private investigators are looking to conduct background checks that can extend to all records available within a particular county courthouse. In some cases, we have requests for as much as a thirty year extended records search. Corra Group has the capability of retrieving any available records, regardless of when the case was first filed. We can obtain the records themselves, and we can also provide the file copies of those records for a more detailed review of the court case.”
Basichis pointed out that sometimes there is but one seemingly minor section within a case file that can be the determining factor in a court case or the decision where to move forward with a business venture. Sometimes that small detail in the court record will give attorneys, investigators, and financial investors a better sense of whom they are dealing with.
“I remember one case where a just a few sentences in a fifteen-year-old case file made all the difference between our attorney client winning or losing his case,” said Basichis. “Sometimes it comes down to something that is seemingly that minor, something that proves a determining factor or demonstrates the motives or relationship of a party’s involvement in either a lawsuit or criminal case.”
Basichis noted that most employment screening background checks typically go back seven years. For compliance issues and certain government contractors, there is sometimes a mandate for a ten year extended search. With extended year searches for corporate research, investigation, and trial preparation, it is often essential to obtain county criminal and county civil records as far back as the county courthouses will allow.
“Sometimes extended year county searches can achieve some surprising results,” said Basichis. “We have seen instances where the subject has been the pillar of society. But then there is something in his past that may give our clients pause to get involved with them. The fact is, you never know what you will find.”
