CRA was engaged by a company that had won an arbitration award in a contract dispute but that needed assistance with collecting on the money owed. Using public records such as real estate documents and Secretary of State filings, and leveraging certain documents produced in the arbitration, our professionals identified a maze of companies tied to the defendant. More importantly, with these records, we were able to show the shell game that had been established to defraud creditors, including our client. Our client used our findings to support a case to pierce the corporate veil and pursue additional avenues of recovery. When confronted with this information, the defendant began making payments on the award against it.
