Brendan Burke

I am a licensed Investigator in Alberta with nearly a decade of industry experience, and an accredited trainer under S. 14(2) of the Security Services and Investigators Act (Ministerial) Regulation. I am also licensed as a Private Investigator in British Columbia. I am appointed as a Commissioner For Oaths in Alberta, and am a member of the Criminal Defense Investigation Training Council (CDITC).

As a CDITC certified criminal defence specialist, I investigate serious charges such as homicide, sexually-based offences, and assault. These investigations can be complex and sensitive, and I am required to handle multiple tasks as well as  rapidly shifting priorities and deadlines.

In addition to my criminal defence work, I conduct background, due diligence, and workplace investigations for major corporate clients, and investigate in support in civil litigation during the pre-trial, trial, and post-judgement stages. I am a CSI Linux Certified Investigator (CSIL-CI)  and create online investigation and cybersecurity tools, with a particular focus in the Python programming language.

I have been featured in Mental Floss magazine, Pursuit Magazine, and on CBC Radio.

Kelly Gilliam

I am a licensed private investigator in Alberta, and am committed to serving our clients through detailed, thorough investigations.

When not engaged in criminal defence investigations, I lead workplace investigations for major public sector and corporate clients, conduct locate investigations, and investigate in support of civil litigation at all stages.

As a workplace investigator, my experience in human resources, managing employees, and with non-profit entities gives me a unique insight in to organizational investigations. With years of experience in both the public and private sector, I excel at identifying workplace culture issues, uncovering ineffective policies and practices, and working with organizations to provide positive, practical solutions.
