Tarter Krinsky & Drogin’s Investigations practice regularly conducts highly sensitive and high-profile internal investigations on behalf of a wide range of private and public entities — from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies — in matters involving the company or its employees, boards, or special committees. We advise clients on how to proactively address potential government probes in a way that mitigates reputational, brand, and litigation risk. We also design and implement corporate compliance procedures, as well as provide training programs and audit compliance programs to evaluate efficacy.
In many cases, the firm handles internal investigations that begin as part of a crisis management response in which the company faces intense public scrutiny regarding issues such as regulatory compliance, employment practices, corporate governance, and fraud or other criminal misconduct. However, a key component of our Investigations practice is evaluating and investigating misconduct suspicions internally on clients’ behalf. We privately conduct due diligence and correct for deficiencies before the government becomes involved, thereby mitigating the potentially negative or punitive effects that can stem from government investigations or enforcement actions. When an internal investigation shifts toward heightened external scrutiny, we work closely with the firm’s White Collar and Regulatory Enforcement Group to provide seamless client service. Similarly, we collaborate with our Litigation Group when our investigation reveals that litigation will likely ensue.
In addition to the protective benefits that the attorney–client and work-product privileges confer, our internal investigations clients have the added benefit of the firm’s savvy lawyers, who know how to maximize protection for communication with the firm. Understanding that our clients’ internal investigations are business-critical, we perform due diligence that meets clients’ objectives efficiently and cost-effectively. We investigate allegations quickly, discreetly, and with minimum disruption, and we report our findings both rigorously and reliably.
