Internal and External Investigations

Need  to conduct an important internal investigation? Are whistleblower protection issues involved under the Sarbanes Oxley Act, the False Claims Act, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act or other federal statutes? Is a high ranking officer or corporate officer implicated?

There are times when an investigation must be done by a professional and be kept confidential. Only an attorney can provide the protection of the attorney-client privilege. An attorney who is a Certified Fraud Examiner and Certified Controls Specialist offers an additional dimension of professionalism and privacy.

There are times when it is important that everyone involved believes that a truly independent investigation has taken place: "Finally, I would suggest that the company consider conducting an independent internal investigation -- and I stress the term 'independent,' in definition as well as spirit." - From speech by Cynthia A. Glassman, Commissioner, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, London, England, March 2, 2005.

We follow industry standard investigatory procedures including questioning witnesses, taking statements, confessions, and providing an investigative report.

Internal Investigations

When case is not right for the internal auditing department and outside expertise is needed, consider hiring an experienced business lawyer and certified fraud examiner as your internal investigation. More on Sarbanes Oxley Investigations . . .

External Investigations

Sometimes the only method of thoroughly investigating financial fraud is by using the subpoena and discovery powers of the court with the assistance of a specialist. If you are considering litigation, hire an experienced business lawyer who is a certified fraud examiner.
