Internal Corporate Investigations
From the largest companies and institutions to sole proprietorships, the threat of a government investigation or prosecution or a private challenge from an employee, a former employee, or a disgruntled business partner, can threaten the stability and success of the venture. With the increased scrutiny, risk, and civil and criminal liability that can result from the conduct of officers, managers, and employees, a timely and properly handled internal investigation is imperative. Clements & Pineault attorneys have conducted and overseen confidential internal investigations relating to mismanagement and other misconduct of senior officials and alleged ethical and criminal violations. Our attorneys also have substantial experience and expertise in conducting and overseeing termination and removal proceedings to effectively avoid civil liability for wrongful discharge.
