Investigations

The size and complexity of business organisations, as well as the increasing number of regulations and risks pertaining to their commercial activity, may cause several irregularities in the organisation. Such irregularities may compromise the company’s assets and reputation, which in turn expose its managers and employees to the risk of personal liability (civil and criminal).

These risks may be mitigated by the implementation of internal procedures, compliance with such procedures and commencing internal investigations should a suspicion arise (i.e. aimed at identifying the nature of any irregularity, its cause, the individual(s) responsible and preparing recommendations for further actions). While conducting internal investigations, we cooperate with audit companies which organise the technical side of the investigation (securement and initial analysis of digital data), investigation agencies and commercial information bureaus.

Services

  • Preparing an internal investigation plan and communication with audit companies.
  • Participating in internal investigations, in particular in employee hearings.
  • Analysing digital data, collected and selected by the audit company.
  • Drafting an investigation report in cooperation with an audit company.
