Managing Investigations and inquiries
However conducting an investigation internally is not without its challenges. They can be time-consuming, and you may not have the right, independent person to manage the process effectively.
Selecting a suitable investigator is critical in ensuring that the findings are not only robust, but that they identify any potential sources of liability and reduce the risk of any future claims against you.

How Loch Law can help
Getting an investigation wrong can have significant repercussions if a claim is brought against you later on. Loch Law can carry out an investigation on your behalf, where our impartial experts will be able to plan and conduct the process thoroughly before reviewing all of the evidence available from witnesses, documents, internal emails, and more.
Alternatively, we can help you identify and appoint the most appropriate member of staff to carry out the procedure, and offer guidance as to what needs to be done – who to speak to, what questions to ask, and other detailed direction to facilitate a smooth and efficient investigation.
Investigations are often fact-finding exercises in the first instance, seeking to establish definitively whether allegations are accurate and the exact nature of events. This process must be carried out with systematic rigour and the results analysed properly to arrive at a full understanding of the situation – and therefore the best course of action needed in response.
Using Loch Law to support your investigation will ensure you minimise the impact of an investigation on your business, whilst ensuring a fair and accurate outcome.
We have been incredibly thankful for having your support over the last few years and our clients have been very impressed with the help they have received from Pam Loch and the rest of the team. We cannot praise you highly enough.
The speed of their service levels combined with high quality advice always exceeds our expectations and as a result we have been a satisfied client of the firm for over 7 years. I would not hesitate to recommend Loch Law to any business.
I cannot recommend Joe Milner at the Tunbridge Wells office highly enough. He was extremely helpful and reassuring and settled my claim quickly and efficiently. What a delightful chap to do business with.

Thank you so much for your advice. I really appreciate the fact that you were able to understand the nature of our company and tailor your advice accordingly. I think that ability is key in defining a good lawyer. Lawyers who cannot deviate from 100% security are of little use.
It goes without saying my contacting you at the outset & getting your great advice gave me confidence through this upsetting episode.
I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your help and please let whoever helps you get this out of the door know that I appreciate theirs too!

Flexible solutions and additional support
We can also assist in investigating problems with staff absenteeism. By working closely with the dedicated HR Medical Specialists from our sister company, Loch HR, we can help to understand whether an employee with poor attendance has a legitimate medical issue, and how you can effectively manage the situation.
Loch Law can also step in to review the results of an inquiry conducted by another party, such as in a court or tribunal setting. Every investigation is different, and we can provide a bespoke solution based on the unique needs of your business.
