We can help your company conduct an internal investigation of any problems or concerns that have arisen, such as allegations of harassment or discrimination, compliance with internal policies and practices or accounting issues. We have substantial experience helping companies determine whether claims or wrongdoing--whether made by an employee or a third-party--are true.
It is critical in these investigations to understand the contours of the attorney-client privilege and work product doctrine to make sure the results of the investigation remain private. We can assist you making sure your investigation will meet those standards.
In the past, we have worked with outside accounting firms to investigate whistle-blower claims and looked into problems raised by outside auditors. In addition, should you need to disclose the results of your investigation to the government, we can help you minimize the risk to your business of this disclosure.
