We conduct internal investigations for corporations and individuals, under a wide variety of circumstances. Sometimes the business client has received a grand jury subpoena for documents or testimony concerning its internal workings and we are brought in to ascertain the company’s exposure. Sometimes an employee has alerted the company officers of alleged improprieties taking place at the company and we are brought in to investigate the individuals allegedly involved and, if warranted, bring the results of the investigation to a federal or state authority for prosecution. Other times we are hired by an individual who is being victimized by another person or an entity and the individual desires to have the offending conduct terminated without the publicity that would be generated by referring the matter to federal, state, or local law enforcement.
