For holders of judgements or for litigation strategic planning, a thorough asset investigation can identify and document the asset holdings of a debtor of counter-party. Establishing the extent and nature of a subjects assets can be important to have targets for garnishment or seizure, or to demonstrate bad faith and concealment of assets.
