When companies are faced with internal complaints of wrongdoing (discrimination, harassment, whistleblowing, etc.), they hire us to conduct an investigation or advise them through the process. As trial lawyers, we know the hallmarks and importance of a defensible internal investigation. Careful planning and asking the right questions of witnesses can be outcome determinative.
We also are retained by employees who initiate the complaint or by the employee who is the target of an internal investigation. We advise these individuals of their rights and obligations, with the goal of preserving any claims or defenses in the event of future litigation.
