Internal investigations are now increasingly a fact of life for organisations big and small.
Misconduct allegations in the workplace need to be dealt with speedily and carefully, or they can have serious consequences.
We are trusted by general counsel, employment lawyers, HR departments and other professionals as a safe pair of hands in these situations. We are used to dealing with individuals in the firing line, whether they are the accused or the accuser. We have the skill set to deal with allegations of all kinds efficiently, fairly and with the utmost care and discretion.
We are used to putting together teams for an organisation to deal with all aspects of crisis and reputation management. We understand the difficult legal issues that arise in these situations, like legal professional privilege, the use of NDAs, whistleblower protection, reporting to regulators or criminal justice agencies and so on.
Above all, we never lose sight of the fact that somebody’s career and reputation depends on the outcome.
