Internal Investigations

With increased emphasis on corporate transparency, the need for an experienced team to lead internal investigations on behalf of public and private sector organizations is more important than ever. Sheehey’s team of accomplished litigators helps organizations determine whether internal wrongdoing has occurred and advises clients on how to rectify the problem, avoid its reoccurrence, and establish best practices for day-to-day management. Composed of former prosecutors and seasoned defense attorneys, our team conducts thorough and impartial investigations, focused on resolving issues, with an eye toward preventing litigation whenever possible.

Workplace investigations are a key component of Sheehey’s internal investigations practice. From sexual harassment allegations to discrimination claims or fraud concerns, government entities, businesses (for-profit and nonprofit), and higher education institutions face an ever-increasing spate of workplace misconduct issues. With our depth of employment law experience and a prosecutorial background, we conduct our internal investigations in a way that lends credibility, candor, and integrity to your organization under challenging circumstances.

We help you answer important questions about the scope and manner of the investigation, whether the attorney-client privilege should be waived, whether the company should discipline or terminate the employment of those involved, and what remedial measures are warranted and how they should be implemented.
