Investigations Litigation

Centre Law attorneys have decades of experience conducting internal investigations of employee complaints and cyber incidents and proactively responding to government investigators. We have dealt extensively with the U.S. Department of Justice and Offices of Inspector General of defense and civilian agencies. We routinely advise contractors with respect to whistleblowers and anti-retaliation obligations as well as remedial measures and potential self-reporting obligations, and we have defended our investigations before regulators, courts, and other interested parties. We have broad experience leveraging e-discovery tools for the efficient collection, review and production of massive volumes of data in response to government subpoenas and production requests.

Internal investigations are an essential part of compliance and corporate governance; make sure you have a trusted partner to help you through this often-difficult task.
