Practical tips and techniques for using advanced technology to find answers
The CEO of a large corporation has asked you to investigate a tip she has received. Concerned about potential conflicts of interest, you call your law firm to help out. Counsel, in turn, quickly engages an investigator to ferret out the facts.
The tip alleges fraud and misconduct by a high-ranking corporate officer (“Georgia”) who has been with the company for many years. Georgia is confident, outgoing, well liked and has over half of the corporate divisions reporting to her. It turns out, however, that she may have a dark side. Over the years she may have colluded with the competition, stolen trade secrets and even may have used her position to sexually harass several employees.
As corporate counsel, outside attorney or even private investigator, where do you begin? What is your strategy? Whom do you trust?
Join us for an exciting webinar focusing on mastering internal investigations. Drawing on years of experience, our panel—which includes a savvy investigative attorney, a certified fraud examiner and a search technology expert—will provide practical tips and techniques to handle an internal investigation with a particular emphasis on using advanced technology and predictive analytics to get to the bottom of the matter quickly and efficiently.
