Global Business Consultants oversees handling the case in its entirety. GBC does not take advice, tips, tricks, or help from the client or any other sources. If our services were retained its because other parties thus far have not been able to solve the case therefore taking advice from someone would not be logical in anyway. We have been conducting investigations over 25 years. If the client decides to cancel the case because they are not allowed to direct the case how they want the investigator reserves the right to cease any further investigations, send the client any information developed thus far, and No-Refund Given.
Privileged Conversations & Client Confidentiality with SCI
Client conversations are confidential between GBC and Clients about any topics discussed even during consultation. The only times these are not considered confidential any longer is if GBC is served a subpoena signed by judge from State, Local, or Federal Law Enforcement requiring the immediate release of all case notes, photographs, or Investigative Reports. Also, if the Client makes any threats even if verbal that places the investigator in concern of the safety of the public, a person’s life, or group of persons life in which case Law Enforcement will be notified for them to take over the case.
