Internal investigations

Corporate malfeasance presents unique financial and reputational risks to any business or brand. We work with executives, legal counsel and advisors to gather information and develop an effective response, including civil or criminal prosecution, communications strategy or self-reporting.

We carry out proactive and reactive bribery and corruption investigations globally which include assessing gains, fines, affordability, and disgorgement following company wrongdoing, and presenting and agreeing penalties with courts and prosecutors.
