Opposition Research


Opposition research is used to legally investigate the biographical, legal, criminal, medical, educational, financial, public and private administrative voting records of your competition, as well as media coverage analysis.

We maintain long-term databases that span several decades, a tactical maneuver as well as a cost-saving measure, for our clients.

Most don’t want to admit it, but the political war room deploys a myriad of behind-the-scenes tactics and troops to influence policy. The most clandestine is the use of skilled campaign operatives to uncover negative information on foes to discredit, distract, and neutralize opponents, which is particularly dangerous for election campaigns and their candidates. Conducted poorly, this effort can boomerang. We prefer to exercise opposition research to protect good clients and causes from inaccurate or false PR.

We search for both inconsistencies and credibility in people’s statements or assertions. We share our information with clients and our lobbyists to discuss either taking findings public or engaging in productive dialogue that leads to win-win solutions.

Our Empowerment Enterprises, Ltd. team members possess backgrounds in politics, government, the military, intelligence, technology, and law enforcement and we have the ability to reach out to our contacts at the federal, state and local levels to protect the integrity, image and reputation of good people.
