As the old saying goes, the best defense is a great offense. A business can defend itself against employee fraud and misconduct by conducting an internal investigation that could uncover misuse of company funds by an employee or determine if there have been any violations of law that could expose a company to administrative, civil, or criminal liability. O’Connor Weber has the knowledge and experience necessary to conduct discreet and thorough internal investigations.
Ideally, a business conducts an internal investigation before potential wrongdoing is discovered by a regulatory or criminal agency. However, an internal investigation can also be invaluable if a regulatory or criminal investigation is already underway. An honest and complete assessment of the scope and nature of potential misconduct and any related liability can help a business take action that can mitigate its exposure. Just as an audit provides certainty with regard to financial matters, an internal investigation can provide a company with valuable insight into potential misconduct so that they can make informed decisions with regard to how they should proceed.
