Corporate Internal Investigations

There are a wide range of circumstances that might lead to a business deciding to contact lawyers to carry out an internal investigation.

Some of those circumstances to begin a corporate internal investigation may include the following:

  • You might be concerned that your business has inadvertently become involved in the commission of regulatory or criminal wrongdoing.
  • You could be worried that an employee has defrauded you or stolen money from you.
  • You need to investigate whether an employee has breached internal policies or breached codes of conduct set out by your regulator. For example, through sexual harassment of a colleague.

Each of these circumstances may mean that you need to instruct an independent lawyer to carry out a full internal investigation to establish what has happened and advise how to move forward.
