Corporate investigations and crisis management
We have extensive experience in conducting a broad range of investigations of companies and organisations, in the private and public sectors alike. Our investigations are conducted with the utmost of discretion and integrity, and subject to the protection of legal privilege.
Each investigation varies in scope and character depending on how the subject of investigation was initially identified – within the scope of the organisation's own preventive action programmes, as a result of a whistleblowing matter, or due to the work of an investigating authority or journalist. The majority of the investigations we manage, however, have one thing in common: we help our clients to clarify a specific sequence of events, and to identify and analyse relevant legal issues. Such issues are often linked to criminal, regulatory, civil, or company law liability and often involve employment law issues.
We also conduct external independent reviews into suspected irregularities or misconduct in a company or organisation. Our established methodology helps us to determine the scope and to conduct and deliver the results of such investigations, in a manner that maintains the investigation's independence and impartiality.
Within the scope of our practice, we have extensive experience from contacts with investigating authorities and supervisory bodies in Sweden and abroad. We have a well-established network of consultants that may assist us in our investigative work, e.g. with the research and management of documentation and conducting investigations involving specific individuals and companies. We also have extensive experience in cooperating with criminal lawyers and communication agencies.
