I attended a regional meeting of the Council of International Investigators (CII) this weekend in Bratislava. Although I’m not a member of CII, I attended because someone told me that private investigations are illegal in Slovakia (something that turned out not to be true), and the prospect of meeting other investigators in a place where our work is banned was too good to pass up. Besides, it was in Bratislava where I proposed to my wife five years ago, atop the tower above St. Michael’s Gate. It’s a familiar town, and it was a unique opportunity to learn something new about international investigations.

Philip Becnel

I'm an author and the Managing Partner of Dinolt Becnel & Wells Investigative Group, a private investigations firm based in Washington, D.C. My books include "Introduction to Conducting Private Investigations" and "Principles of Investigative Documentation." I get excited about technologies and theories that change how people do investigations, and I believe that nothing is sexier than a superbly written investigative report. My firm investigates anything worth investigating, but my personal specialties include employment investigations regarding harassment, discrimination, fraud, and other disputed workplace behavior; and criminal defense. When I'm not investigating or writing about investigating, I'm painting oil portraits or watching baseball with my two kids.
