Bishops Services is the oldest privately held investigation and corporate due diligence firm in the United States. Founded in 1898, Bishops uses its decades of experience to bring insight, accuracy and timeliness to its investigations around the world. Bishops’ clients include:

  • law and accounting firms
  • government
  • hedge funds
  • private equity firms
  • commercial and investment banks
  • recruiting and search practices
  • real estate firms
  • corporations considering mergers, acquisitions and strategic investments.

Our lead investigators develop a deep understanding of the needs of each market segment and tailor their due diligence and reporting process to meet a client’s individual needs.

In 2008, Bishops became part of the Sterling Talent Solutions group of companies. This allows Bishops to use Sterling Talent Solutions’s industry leading technology capabilities to enhance its processes and deliver the most cost effective services available in the industry to its clients. While other firms have used technology to create “cookie-cutter” report templates and internet downloads to conduct its investigations, Bishops uses technology to access an increased range of primary source data at every jurisdictional level. That, coupled with insightful investigators, creates the Bishops edge.

Bishops maintains offices in New York, Atlanta, Fort Collins, Los Angeles and in Mumbai, India with associated offices in London, Sao Paulo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Moscow, and Beijing and in more than 200 countries & territories around the world.
