Corporate investigations: key issues for boards and in-house lawyers

Internal investigations may be necessary in a number of circumstances, such as the discovery of possible wrongdoing within the company; potential or pending civil litigation; or the receipt of a notice from an investigative or prosecutorial authority or regulator, for example, the Financial Conduct Authority, HM Revenue & Customs or the Competition and Markets Authority. Investigations need to be efficient, proportionate, systematic and professional in order to produce reliable and credible results while staying within the company’s legal budget.
