What to know about Internal Investigations

William F. Sinnott, Partner, shares why internal investigations are a smart business decision. In this media age of instant information, organizations are under constant scrutiny, and engaging in an internal investigation demonstrates transparency and a commitment to righting any wrongs uncovered. A company that does not proactively address allegations of misconduct, discrimination, or fraud appropriately can find itself out of business. Clients should consider the cost of not conducting an investigation and the potential fallout. Ultimately, the goal is for clients to come out of an investigation with a road map of how to do things better in the future, for both the organization and its employees.
