As part of their ongoing compliance efforts, corporations are often proactive in responding to claims of misconduct. In addition, recent legislative and regulatory initiatives, such as Sarbanes-Oxley, have imposed new obligations on companies to police themselves. We have experience in conducting these sensitive and important internal investigations and in advising companies of the steps to take in light of the results. Care must be taken to preserve attorney-client and work product privileges during the course of the investigation, and the company must be fully advised of all of the requirements and ramifications when determining what disclosures or actions should flow from the investigation. We have also represented individual employees and corporate officers when they become involved in these investigations.
