Independent Investigations

In today’s complex business environment, a matter sometimes calls for an independent investigation. For example, the need could arise if:

  • An allegation implicates senior management
  • An organization’s integrity and public credibility appears compromised
  • A hotline complaint questions the accuracy of prior disclosures
  • Actions based on the advice of regular outside counsel are under scrutiny
  • A derivative action raises questions for an independent board committee
  • A corporation’s compliance or HR policies are broadly criticized
  • An allegation implicates the board, a board committee, or a member

When independence and integrity are paramount, boards and board committees need experienced counsel who understand how to investigate quickly, thoroughly, and appropriately for the circumstances. Working discreetly and efficiently, counsel must be able to minimize disruption and reach definitive conclusions.
