Internal Investigations & Compliance

Internal Investigations & Compliance

Spiro Harrison & Nelson conducts internal investigations on behalf of a diverse range of entities, including public and private corporations, corporate boards of directors, special committees, and non-profit institutions. Our investigations cover a broad spectrum, from allegations of discrimination, retaliation, and other employment-related issues, to more complex matters such as healthcare fraud, FDA violations, False Claims Act violations, environmental concerns, executive misconduct, bank and tax fraud, government contract disputes, market manipulation, and breaches of federal, state, and local laws. With extensive experience, we offer strategic counsel to clients confronting potential financial liabilities, criminal ramifications, and intricate public relations challenges.

We strive to provide clients with an efficient and cost-effective approach to investigating their matters with confidentiality, discretion, and a minimum of business disruption. We provide management and in-house counsel with comprehensive, focused reports of our findings, analysis, and recommendations. Our attorneys’ broad experience across many areas of business and government strongly positions us to help our clients devise forward-looking, preventive compliance measures and processes, including updating corporate policies and developing compliance training programs.

In addition to our work for businesses, we also advocate for individuals who are involved in investigations or seek guidance regarding compliance issues. Whether individuals are navigating inquiries from regulatory bodies, addressing allegations of misconduct, or seeking proactive advice to ensure adherence to industry regulations, we provide personalized counsel tailored to their unique needs and circumstances. Our aim is to protect their rights, mitigate risks, and assist them in navigating complex legal challenges with confidence and clarity.
