Ethics and Compliance Program Assessment

"We have to build the framework in which we will execute the tasks."

When misconduct or ethical lapses occur, our skilled investigators can effectively and efficiently scope and conduct a thorough investigation.

Investigations of Employee Misconduct

We have licensed investigators with decades of investigations experience

Whether your company is conducting its first legal and compliance risk assessment or looking for validation or even a fresh approach, our team provides clear direction and support to accomplish this foundational element for your program.

Comprehensive Risk Assessment Support

"It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him." 

It is a best practice to have independent assessment of corporate compliance and ethics program effectiveness. 

Independent Corporate Monitoring

When an organization experiences misconduct, sometimes an agreement with the government is the most reasonable resolution. If you are seeking a trusted and experienced independent corporate monitor to serve with integrity under a government agreement,  members of our team can serve in that role.
