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.
