Allegations of criminal or other misconduct often trigger the need to determine what is happening inside of an organization that may be being kept from management or a Board of Directors. In such cases, an internal investigation may be required. Internal investigations can be delicate, and careful preparation will be necessary to protect any attorney-client privilege and attorney work-product protection that may cover the investigation.
Kauffman Kilberg LLC attorneys have experience working with management and Boards to conduct effective and complete internal investigations, whether the allegations of wrongdoing come from with the company or from a third party. We work with clients to make recommendations that can include disciplinary action against offending employees, policy and procedure revisions to cover compliance gaps, decisions about whether to cooperate with a government investigation, and related matters.
