AN INTRODUCTION BY JOHN NOUKAS, PRESIDENT:
Noukas and Associates is an internationally affiliated organization of professional investigators that provides its clientele with discreet, comprehensive services. Most of our investigators are former federal agents with a variety of backgrounds within the private sector, government, law enforcement and the intelligence community.
As a former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Special Agent I have gained experience in program management, security administration, task force supervision, crime prevention and investigations. I have also directed and implemented foreign counterintelligence investigations on issues impacting United States National Security.
Over the past 24 years, I have represented many leading legal, insurance, corporate and financial firms in the United States and abroad and have developed an excellent reputation in the field of white collar crime, due diligence, personal injury, background, undercover, and fraud investigations.
In addition to the investigations briefly described on this web site, Noukas & Associates also specializes in the following corporate internal audits:
- Financial Irregularities and Fraud Audits: Embezzlements, skimming, kickback schemes, conflicts of interest, "white collar" criminal activities, diversions and concealment of assets, large scale thefts and frauds, and abuse of internal controls.
- Merger/Acquisition/Securities Matters: Due diligence investigations in merger/acquisition/takeover situations and contests for corporate control, insider trading abuses, antitrust and anti-competition matters, and securities violations.
- Intellectual Property Infringements: Industrial espionage, product counterfeiting and tampering, patent/trademark/copyright infringements; business libel/slander/defamation, and in-depth background investigations (personal, corporate, financial and criminal).
- Computer and Database Security and Design.
Our rates vary, depending on the complexity of the case. Since each case is unique, we encourage you to phone us to discuss your matter in detail so that we may better assess your needs and the costs involved. With regard to incidental expenses, we charge $.85 per mile, plus actual expenses, within limits predetermined by your needs.
For those clients that need a volume of specific services, such as asset searches or background investigations, please call us for a fixed-cost quotation per entity researched, per county, plus the actual cost of the documents that need to be ordered for analysis.
