Legal Counsel with Professionalism and Efficiency
Today’s business environment is complex. Companies are frequently the target of inquiry based upon the actions of a single employee. These situations require decisive action.
To clear your company and yourself of liability, you will need to:
- Identify and understand the scope of the conduct that led to the inquiry
- Discover the individuals involved
- Preserve all relevant evidence
- You will need legal counsel from experienced investigators who are mindful of the attorney-client privilege and sensitive to the needs of management
