Veteran-owned investigations and consulting firm

Summit-Tek was formed by former law enforcement professionals from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Our teams’ unique investigative and analytical expertise provides access and insight into current U.S. government policies governing supply chain security in the maritime domain and network and information assurance.

We focus on providing expert consult that involves assessing and analyzing vulnerabilities, performing internal investigations, assisting in trade compliance, developing best practices for supply chain security, and implementing a steadfast import/export approach. Our principles and associates offer a wide variety of law enforcement-related services that include providing expert testimony, interviewing, forensic auditing, training, assessments, and assisting with presentation and trial preparation.

These qualities, experiences, and talent separate Summit-Tek from its competitors. We recognize the importance of maintaining a clean brand, free from adverse media attention for our clients.
