Internal Investigations: Best Practices and Common Mistakes?




Why Attend?
A well-conducted internal investigation allows companies to discover and address potential misconduct. The results can enable a company to correct a small problem before it becomes a big one, avoid or reduce government penalties, and decrease the risk of private lawsuits. As recent experiences show though, internal investigations are fraught with traps for the unwary. Mistakes in planning or implementing an investigation can render the results useless. This seminar addresses best practices for internal investigations, describes common mistakes, and reviews latest trends, including recent developments in SEC investigations.
