Avoiding Ethical Pitfalls in Corporate Internal Investigations – New York City Bar

Monday, November 22, 2021

Partner Doug Schwarz will be a panelist on the Avoiding Ethical Pitfalls in Corporate Internal Investigations panel for the NYC Bar. This program is perfect for in-house counsel advising management with respect to internal investigations involving executives and other employees, and for outside counsel representing companies or executives on internal investigations in connection with their respective duties and rights relating to compensation and other employment-related matters.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • Understanding the nature of the allegations
  • Clearly identifying the client
  • Deciding who will conduct the investigation
  • Handling investigations targeting the majority owner of a closely held company
  • Limitations on monitoring employee communications sent on company devices
  • Conducting interviews of corporate employees with or without counsel present
  • Issues arising out of the disposition of the investigation
