Internal Investigations

Stoll Berne has a strong team of attorneys who specialize in complex independent investigations of public bodies and private companies.  We advise independent directors, boards, and public bodies, and government entities on internal policies and protocols, systems and personnel matters, and proposed remedial measures.  We also represent corporate audit committees in matters relating to the federal securities laws, books and records, internal controls, and personnel management.  Our attorneys are prepared to:

  • Define the appropriate scope of the independent investigation;

  • Retain forensic experts and other advisors, where necessary;

  • Conduct internal investigation interviews with directors, officers, and employees;

  • Perform comprehensive reviews of information relating to current systems, procedures, protocols, and controls;

  • Identify breakdowns in systems and protocols; and

  • Develop findings and recommendations for remedial or disciplinary actions.

We work effectively with in-house and government counsel to deliver independent assessments that are accurate, objective, thorough, and timely.
