It may not always be the best answer to investigate allegations internally.
While in-house teams are well versed in conducting investigations, sometimes they are overstretched. Other factors such as confidentiality, privilege or distance impact on who should look into the allegations or concerns.
We have a team of lawyers and HR professionals experienced in undertaking investigations. We are familiar with the legal issues that may be involved in such investigations including the need to consider regulatory legal privilege, data handling and cross border angles. Before commencing work, we will scope the investigation with you, including identifying the risks and how these might be mitigated. We will then:
- interview relevant people
- review any relevant documents and
- prepare a detailed investigation report setting out our conclusions
For further information please see our Investigations brochure.
