Our firm needed a comprehensive report analyzing each new member of the 116th Congress, ASAP for a client. Black Edge got the committee assignments, political stances, and staffer contact info before it was on Bloomberg's Premium Subscription Service!

I was applying to jobs after graduate school, when I first noticed some very unflattering photos and comments (which I had deleted years ago) were appearing on the first page results for my name. Black Edge Consulting was able to have them scrubbed from several websites and data aggregators.

My business has one direct competitor. I had a feeling there was something shady going on as we receive many parts from the same supplier, yet they were consistently undercutting us; operating at what appeared to be a loss. Over several months, Black Edge acquired documents, photographs, and other proof confirming that the rival company was illegally importing parts and paying workers off the books.
