Government Investigations

Today’s business environment presents increased risk of scrutiny by enforcement and regulatory agencies. Strengthened incentives for whistleblowers to report allegations of misconduct and recent legislation focusing on corporate governance require businesses, large and small, to be prepared to face the possibility that they may become the subject of a government investigation. The level of preparation and organization in advance of a government investigation is often the determining factor in not only the course of the investigation, but also the ability of the business to survive going forward.
