Our attorneys discreetly conduct unbiased investigations, partnering with experienced accountants, auditors and other professionals to evaluate potential wrongdoing and to offer solutions for remediation. We work with general counsel, boards of directors and other executives in evaluating whistleblower complaints, complaints of sexual or racial harassment in the workplace, auditing irregularities, misallocation or misuse of funds, and matters subject to civil or criminal litigation. In addition, our Group assists schools, colleges, and universities with prompt and impartial Title IX, student conduct and research misconduct investigations.
From the moment a government agent makes contact, a search warrant is served, or a grand jury subpoena or administrative subpoena arrives, our Group is ready to respond. We advise businesses and individuals on the best way to respond to allegations of wrongdoing, including fraud, bid-rigging, False Claims Act and whistleblower violations, public corruption, conflicts of interest, failure to comply with reporting requirements and smuggling.
We handle queries brought by the Department of Justice (DOJ), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Offices of Inspectors General, Offices of Professional Responsibility, Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General, other state attorneys general, state ethics commissions, and other administrative boards. Long-standing relationships with government officials enable us to work with authorities while advocating for our clients and resolving issues with minimal disruption. Government inquires often create a need for internal investigations into misconduct, and our team is experienced in conducting parallel investigations, reporting and analyzing findings, and helping to implement solutions.
