Opposition Research & Competitive Intelligence

At Reveille Advisors, we’re passionate about performing targeted research into the competitors and opposition of our clients’ interests. Utilizing Human Intelligence (HUMINT) and Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) our research provides a 360-degree approach towards your current situation. We audit public records, online software, data platforms, social media, and further to develop comprehensive target packets. From there we often employ social engineering tactics to gain further insight into areas of intrigue. Simply put, we use all legal methods of data and intelligence collection to pull the curtain back on your challengers.

Opposition Research

Opposition research gets a bad rap due to so many misconceptions about it. Collecting oppo research is 100% legal and doesn’t break any laws to procure. It simply takes a personable and skilled investigator to unearth the little details your competition hoped would go unnoticed. 

We perform opposition research by using HUMINT methods and OSINT techniques to lawfully discover and collect valuable information. Opposition research commonly includes a target’s property records, business interests, legal past, professional history and reputation, media coverage, social life, associates, and social media activity.

Maybe it’s a candidate saying they’re running for the “working man” only to realize they have vacation homes in LLCs on some island. What about the person running on a “just say no” campaign that has quietly invested in legal cannabis growing operations? The world is full of hypocritical charlatans, we just want to expose them!

Clandestine Competitor Surveillance

Our corporate investigators are well-versed in clandestine reconnaissance and surveillance; both for government and private sector clients. This unique service allows us to extend our research past the digital realm and pivot to in-person operations.

You can envision our corporate surveillance services similar to what a private investigator would do – we document and perform surveillance on parties or locations securing information that’s beneficial for your use. Whether the goal is to gather evidence or understand their pattern of life, we will accomplish it. Examples regularly include:

  • identifying a competitor’s vendors or partners.
  • track and record who meets with whom and where.
  • discover interpersonal, personal, and extracurricular relationships.
  • search for conflicts of interest.
  • look for evidence of corruption or unethical business practices.
  • determine business practices and processes.

The above list is hardly exhaustive, as this tactical service can be applied to various situations and nearly all scenarios.

Competitive Intelligence & Market Research

In-depth research about all facets of your competition is not limited to political campaigns, as it’s equally alive in most business sectors.

The researchers at Reveille Advisors routinely look into why a client’s rival may be more effective than them, outperforming them with market share, or achieving more brand awareness and visibility. We will investigate their business practices, who their suppliers are, real estate footprints and purchases, talent acquisition strategies, employee rosters, and more. 

Additionally, we perform one-off research projects that are specific to your unique situation. If you’re curious about our capabilities, we are happy to chat with you and let you know if it’s something we can accomplish. Naturally, discretion will be provided for those we cannot serve.

Finally, an area we specialize in includes online brand visibility audits for businesses of all sizes. We have experienced SEO consultants who analyze why Google favors one website over another. Most people don’t realize how much revenue is reliant on being featured on Google’s first page of the Search results. Businesses come to us when they want to learn how to improve that.

Activism Intelligence & Activist Monitoring

We legally monitor and collect any intelligence on those individuals or groups that wish to do your brand, organization, or personnel harm. We are firm believers in the rights afforded by the U.S. Constitution to each American. However, all too commonly you will see isolated pockets of bad actors who go overboard with increasingly destructive and violent behavior. We aren’t narcs, but we also don’t like seeing innocent residents and civilians being put in harm’s way or having their private property destroyed.

This is not politically motivated and isn’t partisan, it’s based on civility within communities.

We offer 30-minute consultations for you to share your challenges and we’ll determine what solutions are available. As always, discretion is provided and secure communication options are available. We’ll speak with you soon!
