About Robert Mann


Robert was born in New York and as a youngster moved to California with his family where he now resides. Robert became an ardent reader of suspense novels and cultivated a passion for solving mysteries at a very young age. Twenty-six years ago he founded the Worldwide Intelligence Network which is an accomplished licensed California and New York Private Investigation company. Today his investigative skills encompass a broad range of diverse investigative assignments all presented on his company’s website. Worldwide Intelligence Network’s investigative assignments have taken Robert around the world where he often worked alongside with associates native to the country where the assignments took him.

Several valued and well-respected prestigious law firms from coast to coast have retained the services of Worldwide Intelligence Network as well as public and private corporations, government agencies such as the County of Los Angeles and the City Attorney of Los Angeles, Metropolitan Transit Authority of Los Angeles. Robert and his team of investigators serve small business owners, multi-national corporations, celebrities, and high-net-worth individuals. Worldwide Intelligence Network is ranked among the “Five Best Private Investigation Companies in America” by Conde Nast Publications.

Culturally savvy and globally-minded; Robert became an expert at interviewing, researching, assessing, writing/editing, and reporting with a keen understanding of the law, evidentiary procedures, and validation of admissible evidence, as well as applicable fraud statues at the State and Local levels.

One of Robert’s most memorable investigations took place in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (formally Saigon) where he was retained to conduct an extraordinary challenging and dangerous investigation of his client’s son’s murder. After concluding that investigation and identifying the killers, Robert felt compelled to write a novel “The Assignment” that was published and received excellent reviews.

Robert was continually being asked to provide Bodyguard services by his clients, and thus he acquired a license to offer Bodyguard Services around the world.

I recall on three separate investigations you made major contributions for our clients. Your work on an international litigation matter and the location of a significant witness immediately assisted us in obtaining a most positive result. Your finding of sequestered documents during a California matter resulted in extraordinary evidence for our client, and your location of substantial sums in hidden assets helped us to convince the defendants to agree to a favorable settlement.-Martin R Pollner Loeb and Loeb
