Internal Investigations & Compliance

INVESTIGATION

Overview

What You Need

You need attorneys that understand the businesses they serve and the legal landscape in which those businesses operate. With increased government scrutiny and more sophisticated whistleblower complaints, you need counsel who can ensure compliance with what is oftentimes a complex set of rules and regulations governing how you conduct your business and handle workplace issues. In those instances where an allegation of misconduct, fraud, or non-compliance has been raised by an outside regulator or internal complaint, you need counsel who can conduct a discreet investigation and advise you on the appropriate course of action.

How We Deliver

Our dedicated team of attorneys, spearheaded by a former federal prosecutor with years of experience conducting investigations and prosecuting cases for the Department of Justice, is uniquely positioned to assist you with developing effective compliance programs, investigating allegations of wrongdoing, and zealously advocating for you when your company or its officers or executives face potential criminal or civil liability.

We are armed with knowledge regarding the latest developments in, among other things, securities fraud; healthcare and insurance fraud; referral and kickback violations; off-label marketing; FDA compliance; FTC and consumer protection; data privacy and security; and employee misconduct and sexual harassment.

Internal Audits and Compliance Programs

It is the firm’s philosophy that the best approach to avoiding government scrutiny and internal complaints is to proactively develop customized, cost-effective compliance programs. We conduct a needs assessment to identify potential areas of risk and partner with you to develop, revise, and implement policies, procedures, codes of conduct to ensure compliance with the ever-changing regulations and laws that businesses must navigate. Where necessary, we provide ongoing training to your personnel.

Internal Investigations

When your company faces external scrutiny or suspects internal wrongdoing, our team of attorneys conducts an internal investigation properly scoped to your specific needs. We keep you updated during the process, help you determine the potential exposure, devise a strategy for handling issues uncovered during the investigation, and work with you to achieve an acceptable end to the investigation so that your business can return to normal as quickly as possible.

White Collar Criminal and Civil Defense

In those instances where your company faces allegations of civil or criminal misconduct, our first goal is to mitigate exposure through appropriate defensive action. Where a civil or criminal action has been commenced, we use our understanding of the system and extensive trial experience to zealously advocate on your behalf.
