United States: handling internal investigations

United States: handling internal investigations


WilmerHale attorneys from the Investigations and Criminal Litigation and Securities Litigation and Enforcement Practices co-authored a chapter in the inaugural edition of Global Investigations Review’s "The Investigations Review of the Americas 2015." WilmerHale Partners Stephen A. Jonas, Daniel F. Schubert and Counsel David Zetlin-Jones collaborated on the chapter titled "United States: handling internal investigations."

Their chapter provides an introduction on how to conduct an "effective internal investigation" and outlines general steps designed to "assure an internal investigation succeeds in the marshalling of facts underlying the allegations, and addresses important issues to consider when engaged in an internal investigation."
