More than ever, there is intense pressure to minimize the likelihood of a bad business decision and the negative fallout that results. At the same time, it is crucial to remain vigilant in efforts to identify, isolate, and halt schemes that damage corporate value.

Unforeseen concerns impacting a potential business deal, allegations of fraud, matters in litigation, and a host of other issues that may put an entire organization in jeopardy are forcing business leaders to re-examine their approach to investigative due diligence and internal investigations.

Internal Investigations

Our investigations provide clients with the information necessary to understand what transpired and to determine an appropriate course of action. We routinely assist clients in creating programs to help strengthen internal controls and provide critical protection if a corporation is subject to criminal or regulatory investigation.

Our team of investigators includes former members of law enforcement, attorneys, business professionals, investigative journalists, and library sciences professionals who are experienced in conducting investigations for clients from virtually every major industry.

We regularly conduct internal investigations involving a broad array of issues, including:

  • Fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Theft of intellectual property or proprietary information
  • Harassment
