In a world of heightened government enforcement and regulation, internal investigations are a vital tool to ensure compliance in a wide variety of industries, to address whistleblower claims and to effectively respond to government investigations.
Regulators and law enforcement often want to know if and how a business has done its due diligence in investigating and addressing allegations of inappropriate behavior. Our attorneys have substantial investigatory experience gained from careers in both the government and private sectors. We have conducted internal investigations and advised corporate clients regarding compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and Sarbanes-Oxley regulations, as well as many other federal, state and local laws.
Our attorney’s routinely conduct investigations related to the following:
Cybercrimes, Cybersecurity and Data Privacy/Breach
Employee Theft, Malfeasance
False Claims Act
Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
Title IX Issues
Theft of Trade Secrets
Workplace Injury or Death
