Investigations

We specialize in conducting comprehensive investigations to help our clients understand and navigate regulatory and compliance risks, as well as potential collateral consequences resulting from substantiated misconduct. Our investigations cover a broad spectrum of areas, including corruption, fraud, antitrust/competition, money laundering, privacy, cybersecurity, data privacy, environmental issues, sanctions and export controls, and various other regulatory and enforcement risk areas. With a team of experienced criminal defense and compliance lawyers, many of whom have prior government, investigative, and in-house experience, we are well-equipped to handle our clients‘ most complex challenges and crises. We conduct independent internal investigations on behalf of corporate management, boards of directors, and audit or special litigation committees. Additionally, we provide representation before government and regulatory agencies, defending against threatened enforcement actions.

Throughout these investigations, we guide companies, manage crises, and address any collateral public relations, civil, or regulatory issues. Our services include overseeing proper document preservation, collection, review, and production, conducting witness interviews, and collaborating with forensic accountants and analysts. We assist clients in fulfilling fiduciary obligations, addressing board and shareholder concerns, developing and implementing remediation plans, and handling various other aspects of representation during a government investigation.
