Corporate investigations are vital fact-finding exercises that are necessary for identifying potential legal wrongdoing that may have occurred within an organisation. It could be an accident or a claim of wrongdoing, but establishing the facts is always necessary to plan an appropriate course of action in response. However, for businesses that are not used to undertaking investigations, this task can be a daunting one. That’s where third-party legal professionals come in, as they can undertake corporate investigations with sensitivity and efficiency.
At Loch Law, we have a team of experienced lawyers who can conduct impartial and forensic corporate investigations. For instance, in cases where an employee has suffered severe injury at work, we can speak to key witnesses, including the affected employee, to determine if proper health and safety guidelines were being followed. Our corporate investigation can determine whether the company is legally liable or not.
Similarly, if there is an allegation of theft at the workplace, we understand the seriousness of the matter and advise that any disciplinary action should only be taken following a fact-finding exercise such as a corporate investigation. Without all the necessary facts, there is a risk of accusing the wrong person and facing civil litigation proceedings.
Our lawyers are experts in speaking to witnesses, sourcing witness statements, and putting together puzzles, even if some of the pieces are missing. So if you have an issue that needs to be resolved, contact Loch Law today, and we’ll undertake a thorough investigation to help you get to the bottom of it.
