Internal and Governmental Investigations
Osborn Maledon's attorneys have an in- depth understanding of the complex nature of internal and governmental investigations. We have established a proven protocol for evaluating how best to conduct such investigations to achieve our client's goals without compromising other client objectives.
We have extensive experience in handling internal investigations and investigations prompted by governmental inquiries, often partnering with our clients' internal and external auditors to address a wide range of issues. These have included corporate governance, government contracting, procurement, use of proprietary information, employee misconduct, and antitrust. Our securities fraud attorneys are also well versed and experienced in corporate internal investigations, regulatory investigations and enforcement proceedings conducted by federal and state authorities, as well as the major self-regulatory organizations including the NYSE and FINRA.
We use small, cost-effective teams with an appreciation for a client's organization, management practices and operational culture. Following our meticulous preparation and investigative procedures, we extract the necessary comprehensive and detailed information to provide the foundation for authoritative legal advice on how a corporate client can best proceed with the issues under investigation and suggest the most appropriate responses to any related concerns.
We assist our clients in preparing and coordinating disclosures to governmental entities stemming from internal investigations or in response to regulatory and other investigations by federal and state governmental agencies such as the Department of Justice, the Department of Defense, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Arizona Corporation Commission. We have extensive experience in handling False Claims Act actions that may arise, representing clients in pre-intervention dealings with the Department of Justice and in the litigation of False Claims Act suits.
If you become subject to a state or federal investigation or need to perform your own corporate internal investigation, contact one of our corporate investigations attorneys.
