Strong in-house talent – in legal, accounting, and computer forensic issues – means we can oversee the quality and cost-effectiveness of any outside work.We staff our investigations leanly with experienced attorneys.
We enjoy being the specialists who are hired to deal with specific business problems – especially in times of corporate crisis – and we take pride in our special counsel role.
Because of our smaller size, we often have fewer conflicts with management, company counsel, or other involved constituencies than our peer firms.
Our lack of conflicts bolsters our independence and helps ensure that the investigations we lead will create a robust and well-founded corporate record.
We know and understand the immense time pressures that financial reporting and other market realities place on the completion of internal investigations.
But we also know the importance of a thorough investigation that can withstand subsequent challenge or attack.
We address these issues by taking a practical approach to investigation strategy, making informed judgments about scope early in the representation.
We understand when additional experts, such as accounting or computer forensic firms add value to an investigation – and when they don’t – and we have the pre-existing relationships with these outside experts to retain them when necessary.
When a company receives allegations of corporate fraud or other misconduct, an effective internal investigation can be a critical tool in discovering the facts and formulating appropriate responses.
Rogers & Hardin lawyers are highly experienced in conducting these investigations.
