Overview:

An internal investigation conducted properly is essential to any business. It nips issues in the bud, keeps companies running, and saves millions of dollars from potential litigation. Not only do internal investigations help in ensuring ongoing legal and regulatory enforcement, but they also provide businesses with an opportunity to correct mistakes and identify risk areas before they become actual liabilities.

However, conducting an internal investigation can be a challenging task. If the investigation is done wrong, it can be costly, disruptive and time-consuming, and may lead to a variety of legal issues and complications. Thus, it is important to plan and carry out an internal investigation that is both effective and accurate.

In this LIVE Webcast, litigation lawyer Nancy Durand (Smith Buss & Jacobs LLP) and attorney and certificated workplace investigator Daphne P. Bishop (Carothers DiSante & Freudenberger LLP) will provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of internal investigations. Speakers, among other things, will present a comprehensive guide on how to effectively conduct and establish an internal investigation while mitigating potential risks and pitfalls.

  • To investigate or not to investigate
