Nov 9, 2021 2:50pm ‐ Nov 9, 2021 4:05pm


Standard: $49.00

Description

As the headlines over the past few years make clear, public and private companies alike face a host of different issues—from employment, to complex accounting and disclosure matters, to allegations of criminal misconduct—that require further review, investigation and, in appropriate cases, remediation. Not all issues need to be addressed in the same way. Some can be handled by in-house lawyers, compliance and human resources, while others need to be addressed by outside counsel and/or truly independent counsel with the assistance of forensic accountants and experts. Come learn best practices regarding how these investigations should be designed and how counsel and forensic experts can work together to get the best result for the client.

Learning Objectives:
  • Evaluate the decision-making process regarding when to initiate an internal investigation
  • Assess best practices on how to design and conduct an internal investigation
  • Predict how forensic experts can effectively work directly with company counsel, or outside counsel, to conduct an investigation
