Investigating potential wrongdoing promptly and aggressively can enhance a company’s credibility with law enforcement, regulators and the investment community and thereby mitigate or even eliminate legal, financial and reputational harm. We have conducted sensitive internal investigations for small and medium-sized companies in a variety of matters. Working discretely, thoroughly and expeditiously, we gather and assess information from documents and individuals and report our conclusions to management, board committees, and/or general counsels, as the situation requires.
When an internal investigation is conducted by a company, Taylor & Cohen LLP is also highly qualified to represent the company’s officers, directors and employees who need their own counsel to protect their interests as individuals.
