Corporate Internal Investigations

There are many reasons why a business may wish to commission an internal investigation, including whistle-blower reports, due diligence, or as a consequence of an external complaint. Internal investigations are often carried out with the aim of avoiding a formal regulatory investigations or enforcement, such as in the event of a health and safety breach, or incidents of financial or other forms of misconduct.

Our expert regulatory solicitors are able to assist businesses in setting up and administering internal investigations, and advising on civil, criminal, regulatory, and employment implications to manage, as well as liaising with and co-ordinating the involvement of external authorities if required. Our team understands the reputational risks associated with the circumstances of such investigations, and is able to advise sensitively in order to help you to protect your business’ interests.

Additionally, our experts are able to advise and assist individuals/employees who are the subject of internal investigations, helping to protect the employee’s interests and reputation. Our team can also assist individuals with any further proceedings which may arise as a consequence of the initial investigation, such as a civil claim for damages, a criminal or regulatory prosecution, or an employment tribunal claim.

If you are a business contemplating launching an internal investigation, or an individual facing an internal investigation process, please contact our regulatory experts now to arrange a reduced fee initial meeting to discuss your options.
