Corporate Investigations

Paul and Chris have significant experience conducting internal investigations on behalf of public and private companies.  They understand that in corporate criminal and parallel civil matters, conducting a comprehensive internal investigation is critically necessary to securing a favorable resolution with prosecutors and regulators.  Having successfully handled numerous complex investigations both as federal prosecutors and defense counsel, Paul and Chris know how to conduct a thorough, well-managed corporate investigation at a fraction of the cost larger firms charge for similar engagements.  Most importantly, when the investigation is complete, Paul and Chris have the experience and know-how to effectively communicate with prosecutors and regulators to secure favorable outcomes.
