Through internal investigations, Finch McCranie’s attorneys can help guide businesses through troubled times. We work with forensic accountants along with retired agents from the FBI and other federal agencies to perform internal investigations for companies with sensitive internal business problems. Public relations consultants may be employed as necessary. Our attorneys at Finch McCranie have considerable experience in these matters and have protected the confidentiality of sensitive and confidential business matters in internal investigations.
Under what circumstances is an internal investigation performed?
Internal investigations are often performed as the result of some alleged misconduct or dishonesty of an employee or executive. An internal investigation may be prudent as a result of a whistleblower complaint, the issuance of a subpoena by the Justice Department or other federal or state agency, or the filing of a lawsuit against the company. Often the company may itself recognize a compliance issue and may require the assistance we offer in developing effective internal controls and compliance procedures.
For decades, our attorneys have honed the skills needed to conduct effective and efficient internal investigations. As an adjunct to the firm’s compliance, monitoring, and white collar criminal defense practices, the firm is well-equipped to perform internal investigations.
